Spicy Thai Noodles

Here’s the perfect lunch that can be made the night before. It tastes especially good served cold. The dish is called spicy Thai noodles so if you use two tablespoons of crushed red pepper, it will be spicy. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. But mark my words; this dish is absolutely dee-licious!

Spicy Thai Noodles
Serves 4

1 box linguini or angel hair pasta
1 – 2 tbsp. crushed red pepper
¼ vegetable oil
½ cup sesame oil
6 tbsp. honey
6 tbsp. soy sauce
Green onions, cilantro, peanuts and toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

Boil noodle; drain.

Chop green onions, cilantro and peanuts.

Heat both oils and crushed red pepper over medium heat in a small pan. (Note: 2 tbsp. makes the dish very spicy.)

Strain out pepper and reserve oil.

To oil, whisk in honey and soy sauce.

Toss mixture with noodles.

Refrigerate overnight or until cold.

Before serving, top each individual serving with green onions, cilantro, peanuts and toasted sesame seeds.

Serve cold.
