Oriental Mushrooms and Pasta with Peanut Sauce

Ingredients:
6 ounces (about 2 cups) penne pasta, uncooked
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
1 pound (about 5 cups) fresh white mushrooms, sliced
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 ounces (about 1-1/2 cups) snow peas, cut in 1-inch pieces
8 ounces boneless pork chops, cut in thin strips

PEANUT SAUCE
(In a large bowl combine all ingredients listed
below until well blended)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
1 tablespoon rice or white wine vinegar
1 to 1-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Directions:
Place prepared Peanut Sauce into a large bowl; set aside. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet heat 1 tablespoon of the oil until hot. Add sliced mushrooms and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat until almost tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in snow peas; cook and stir 2 minutes. Add mushroom mixture to bowl with Peanut Sauce; set aside. Wipe out skillet; add remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add pork strips; cook and stir until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir into Peanut Sauce along with drained pasta; stir until well coated. Serve warm or refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve on shredded iceberg lettuce with radish slices, if desired.
