Last weekend we had our traditional Spaghetti Sunday…with a twist. I wanted to branch out from the typical Italian recipes I usually make for Sunday nights. I decided to go with a recipe inspired by The Pioneer Woman (nothing but love for her). It was GREAT! I think this dish will become a staple in my recipe routine, because it’s absolutely delicious and it couldn’t be easier to make. Next time, I think I’ll make a double batch because I have a feeling these noodles would be fantastic as a cold salad. Give this one a whirl, folks!
Spicy Sesame Noodles (inspired by The Pioneer Woman)
- 1 box of Barilla Plus Angel Hair pasta
- 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons of sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon of hot chili oil (check for this in the Asian section of your grocery store)
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 4 whole green onions, sliced thin
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- Red pepper flakes, to taste
- Kosher salt, to taste (if necessary)
- Prepare the pasta according to package instructions.
- While pasta is cooking, whisk together soy sauce, sugar, garlic, rice vinegar, sesame oil, hot chili oil and olive oil.
- Taste the sauce and add red pepper flakes, pepper and salt to taste. As always, add the red pepper flakes gradually!
- Once you get the level of spiciness you like, pour the sauce over the warm noodles and toss to coat evenly.
- Sprinkle with green onions and serve with pride.
