Sesame Noodles



This is our new favorite thing to eat, ever. Until our next favorite thing to eat ever comes along at least.


If you know me in real life you know how seriously I take noodles. Its my guilty pleasure, even though I feel no guilt what-so-ever about my obsession for noodles.



And these? Well, these are perfect. I don't know if its the thickness of noodle we used, or the flavors in the sauce that really pulls this dish together, but something makes em' and we're totally obsessed.


 Sesame Noodles

1 lb Box of Thick Spaghetti 
1/2 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper (this makes it spicy, so cut the measurement down to your liking)
2 tablespoons Sesame Oil
4 tablespoons Honey
3 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Sesame Seeds
1 Green Onion, chopped for garnish 

Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook your thick spaghetti to al dente. Using thick spaghetti is the secret to giving it that true noodle feel. Drain and set aside. In a skillet, heat up your sesame oil and red pepper for 2 minutes. Drain the red pepper fo the oil and set aside.

In a bowl mix your honey, soy sauce, and sesame seeds. Add in your red pepper infused oil and stir to combined. You can add a drop of water if the sauce is too thick for you.

In the same skillet you had the oil in, add in your cooked spaghetti noodles and pour the sauce on top. Toss in the skillet for 3-4 minutes to heat through and add a little crisp.

Serve in a bowl garnished with green onions and change your life forever.
