Spicy Peanut Noodle Stir Fry

With two kids now and not much time for cooking we have been eating far more pasta then I would like to admit. So, I have been trying to make the healthiest dishes I can with noodles.
A few days ago on Pinterest this yummy looking recipe for Spicy Peanut Stir Fry popped up.  I didn't have all the ingredients and decided to change things a bit, it was delicious and pretty quick, I will definitely be making it again.

Spicy Peanut Stir Fry
1 medium onion chopped
2 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp chopped fresh ginger
1 red bell pepper, sliced into 2-inch strips
2 tbls cashews
1/2 package spaghetti noodles
3 tbls Bragg's Liquid Amino Acids or soy sauce
1 tbls olive oil
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
3 tbls silan
2 tbls rice vinegar
1 tbls water
1/2 tbls chili powder
1 drop doTerra cilantro essential oil
2 scallions, thinly sliced (both green and white parts)

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and sauté the onion, garlic and ginger until softened. Add the red bell pepper strips and continue sautéing for 5 minutes or until softened. Add the cashews and continue for 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the Bragg with the peanut butter, silan, rice, vinegar, water, chili powder and cilantro essential oil and set aside.

Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Rinse and drain the noodles, transfer to a large bowl, and toss with the peanut sauce and sautéed red bell pepper. Serve the noodles topped with the scallions.
