I love any kind of Asian noodle dish, especially a Thai one that includes peanut butter. Good news too: Peanut butter is heart healthy. It’s very filling and satisfying when added to a noodle dish. The red pepper flakes add just the right amount of spice. The skinny for each fiber rich serving is 290 calories, 8 grams of fat, 7 grams fiber and 7 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. It’s simply delicious
