Asian Spicy Noodles Recipe

Hi friends! I hope you are having a great week so far! Brady seems completely better today, thank goodness! I kept him home from school and I think that it was necessary, he still said that his tummy hurt but he didn't have any other physical symptoms so he'll go back to school tomorrow. As for me, I'm not 100% but I'll be ok.

Today, I'm sharing a recipe that I've adapted from one I found on Pinterest. You can find the original recipe HERE. When I find a recipe, I like to follow it to the letter the first time through and then maybe my revisions the second time around. I found this recipe too oily and very sweet when I made it so I changed it up the second time.
Asian Spicy Noodles:
~1 box angel hair pasta
~1/4 cup canola oil
~1/4 cup sesame oil
~6 tablespoons soy sauce
~3 tablespoons honey
~1-2 tablespoons red pepper flakes

Optional toppings: sesame seeds, peanuts, shredded carrots, bean sprouts, blanched broccoli, snow peas, onions, etc...

1. Boil noodles, drain and rinse with cold water. This is a "salad" dish after all. (I always rinse my pasta when I make a salad.)
2. Heat oils together, add red pepper flakes (we like a lot of heat, you can use less), let steep, and then strain out the flakes and discard.
3. While the oil is still warm, whisk in soy sauce and honey. Pour over noodles and let chill until cold.
4. When you are ready to serve, top with desired ingredients and enjoy!

If you try this recipe, let me know! I'd love to know what you think!
