Chinese Noodles with Hot Peanut Sauce

Seeing a recipe, like the one below, is similar to putting a red cape in front of a bull.  I jump right in to play and it is a lot less gory.  Having a package of fresh Chinese noodles in my refrigerator, this was a no brainer and I made a dish that could be served both as a salad or as a side.  Yum.
