Spicy Asian Noodles

Asian food is my absolute favorite style of food.  This Spicy Asian Noodles is a quick and easy way to bring Asian cuisine into your home without all the fuss of julienning vegetables or buying a wok.  It is similar to Pad Thai, but has a thinner, less peanut buttery sauce.

1-2 tbs red chili flakes
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup vegetable oil
7 tbs soy sauce
5 tbs honey
1 tbs peanut butter
1/2 cup green onions (scallions)
2 carrots, peeled and grated
3/4 cup peanuts
1 pound pasta

Infuse sesame and vegetable oils with red chili flakes by combining them in a skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes.  Strain chili flakes from oil.  Whisk in soy sauce, honey, and peanut butter.

Boil pasta.  While it is cooking, chop up green onions and grate carrots.

Drain pasta and put it back in the pot.  Pour the soy sauce mixture in and stir.

Top with green onions, carrots, and peanuts.

Simple Asian cuisine in under 20 minutes.  Enjoy!
