Note from the Diva
Crunchy bell pepper and spicy chili garlic sauce highlight this surprisingly healthful dish. At 338 calories for a whole-meal serving it's an excellent dinner choice, and it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. For simple variations try rice or another kind of Asian noodles like udon or somen, or sub another favorite vegetable―carrots or broccoli work well―for the bell pepper.

List of Ingredients
6 ounces soba (buckwheat) noodles, uncooked
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
1 (1-pound) pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 2-inch strips
1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce (such as Lee Kum Kee)
1 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World)
3/4 cup red bell pepper strips (about 1 small pepper)
1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon peanut butter
3/4 cup (2-inch) diagonally cut green onions (about 4 green onions)

Preparation
1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water; drain.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork, chili garlic sauce, and ginger to pan; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add bell pepper to pan; stir-fry 2 minutes. Add broth, soy sauce, and peanut butter to pan. Reduce heat to low; cook for 1 minute or until sauce is slightly thick. Stir in onions. Serve over noodles.
