 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         spaghetti
      1/4  cup           sesame oil
      1/2  cup           natural style creamy peanut butter
      1/3  cup           tamari soy sauce
    3      tablespoons   sherry
    1      tablespoon    water
    1 1/2  tablespoons   rice wine vinegar
    1      tablespoon    vegetable oil
    1      tablespoon    light brown sugar -- firmly packed
    3      cloves        garlic -- finely minced
    1      teaspoon      ginger root -- minced
      1/2  teaspoon      red pepper flakes -- crushed
    1                    cucumber -- peeled and sliced
    4                    scallions -- thinly sliced
 
 Cook the spaghettini al dente. Drain and rinse under cold water. Drain very
 well again. With your hands, toss the noodles with half of the sesame oil.
 Cover and chill until ready to combine with the peanut sauce, or up to 24
 hours.
 
 To make the peanut sauce, combine the remaining sesame oil with all the other
 ingredients except the cucumber and scallion. Beat until well mixed. The sauce
 can be kept in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 24 hours before serving.
 
 Just before serving, gently toss the noodles with the sauce, cucumbers and
 half the scallions. Garnish with the remaining scallions.
