Heat 2 tablespoons oil in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and jalapenos; saute until tender but not brown, about 3 mins.

Add the coconut milk, peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, sesame oil, ginger, honey and tabasco and mix well, until smooth. Bring to a simmer. Take off heat and season (if needed) with salt and pepper. (I added pepper, but didn't think it needed salt!) You can stop at this point, if desired and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Heat 1 tbsp.

oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the red pepper, mushrooms and green onions and cook for about 3 mins. Add the skinless, boneless chicken and cook until done. (About 5 mins.) Add this to the sauce. Cook the pasta in a pot of salted, boiling water until tender, but not overdone. Drain. Bring sauce to a simmer and pour over pasta. Toss well until coated. Serve.
