Recipe for Disaster

This is by far the most awful sounding recipe I have come across, I'm pretty sure. Whilst having dinner tonight with Ivan, Erin, and Christen, I noticed this recipe on the lid of my Smucker's peanut butter jar. I'll let you be the judge of the potential for yourself, but to be completely honest, it sounds to me like the result of some pregnant woman's cravings, except without the mayonnaise and pickles.

1 cup Smucker's Natural, stirred or Organic Peanut butter (off to a good start)
1/2 cup warm water (nothing too dangerous yet)
1/2 cup Dickinson's Tomato Ketchup (ketchup?! really?!)
1 tablespoon soy sauce (you lost me at ketchup)
1 teaspoon garlic powder (perhaps this was an effort of salvaging)
1/2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar (no further comment)
1 pound uncooked rotini pasta
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
Shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)

1. Combine peanut butter, water, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic powder, and vinegar in small bowl with a whisk, until smooth and well blended.
2. Cook pasta according to the package directions. Drain well.
3. Toss hot pasta twists with sauce, until evenly coated. Garnish with red bell pepper and shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired.

Actually, I think you should try it. Because one of my favorite recipes involves peanut butter, soy sauce, tofu, and tomato sauce. It's actually quite yummy!

Minus the ketchup it sounds like some Thai peanut noodles that I made once. And they were good! But the ketchup thing really... ew. And I'm iffy on the shredded cheese.
