I was looking for an easy dish to make for dinner without having to make a trip to the grocery store. This fit the bill! The only thing I didn't have was green onions so I used chives instead. I love green onions and next time I will be sure to include them! Regardless, this was a breeze to prepare and quite tasty. I didn't have hot chili oil so instead I used red pepper flakes (which make a pretty garnish, too) and used 1 tbsp hot sesame oil and 2 tbsp regular sesame oil. My variations gave it just the perfect amount of kick! Recipe slightly adapted from Let's Dish.
12 ounces thin spaghetti
¼ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons sesame oil
½ teaspoon hot chili oil (or chili pepper flakes)
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons hot water (can use pasta water)
3-4 green onions, sliced
Sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, whisk remaining ingredients (except green onions) together in a large bowl. Pour drained noodles into bowl with soy sauce mixture and toss until noodles are evenly coated. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds and serve.
