Hot and Spicy Peanut Sauce

Sometimes I want hot pasta, and when I do, I make up a big bowl of gluten-free black bean spaghetti and slather it with a tasty sauce.  This Hot and Spicy Peanut Sauce is very flavorful, and when you read the ingredients, it may sound like an odd combination. But it is truly delcious and I have enjoyed it a couple of times now.  It is a mixture of some of my favorites!

If you are a fan of hot sauces, then go ahead and use more sriracha! I kept it to 1/2 teaspoon but you might like more.... and my shredded cheese is a blend of 3 different cheeses that I purchase at Costco but I think that shredded parmesan or asagio would work nicely too. Just gives it a bit of a salty tang. I use a gluten-free soy sauce called tamari... use your own favorite.

I am going to make it again and have it with lightly sauted zoodles...

If you give it a try, I would love to know what you think!
