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

1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
1 tablespoon rice or white wine vinegar
