Silly question re: rice noodles and peanut sauce

jsjs09812 | Mar 18, 2007 11:22 AM

I was watching Barefoot Contessa the other day and she made a noodle salad with peanut sauce that looked easy and really tasty. As I was purchasing what I could recall from the show a few weeks later, I decided to sub rice noodles for spaghetti. Now I'm concerned that a peanut sauce (peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, oil, ginger) could be too heavy for the delicate rice noodles, and it's sort of a messy and expensive experiment if it's terrible. Should I stop being such a wimp and go conquer these noodles, or should I just give in and use spaghetti? Thank you for talking me through my first homemade peanut sauce!
