PRO TIP: Any pasta will work for this dish! You could make it with angel hair pasta, spaghetti, or fettuccine. Whatever you have on hand will work! Instead of traditional pasta, you could even make this recipe with our zucchini noodles.

Ingredients Needed for Spicy Thai Noodles:

  • 1 pound linguine
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 zucchini, cut in half vertically and then sliced in half circles
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups carrot, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 1 ½ tablespoons sriracha hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • ¼ cup peanuts, chopped

Garnish with extra chopped peanuts, cilantro, green onions and sesame seeds. 

Substitutions:

Vegan Option: You could omit the eggs for a vegan dish.

Add Protein: If you want to add protein, a rotisserie chicken helps save time. You could also serve with pork, shrimp or tofu. 

Add Spice: You can add more red pepper flakes if you like this dish really spicy.

Several different types of food on a table, with Noodle and Sauce

How to Make Spicy Thai Noodles:

Prepare linguine according to package in a large stockpot. This will be the one-pot used for the whole recipe. Set aside cooked and drained pasta.

In a medium bowl combine brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, sriracha, and ginger. Whisk well to combine and set aside.

Return the above large stockpot to the stove over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and the beaten eggs and red pepper flakes and scramble the eggs. Once cooked, set aside with the pasta.

PRO TIP: You can use toasted or regular sesame oil. Toasted sesame oil will give you a deeper, nuttier flavor but regular sesame oil is nice as well! 

Return stock pot to the stove at medium heat and then add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, and garlic. Saute over medium to high heat for 5-6 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked through.

Turn heat to low, add pasta and eggs back to the pot. Then pour the sauce mixture over the top. Using a wooden spoon stir well to coat pasta and vegetables with the sauce.

Remove from heat and add peanuts, green onions, and cilantro. Stir to combine and serve immediately.

LEFTOVERS: Any leftovers for three days in the fridge in a sealed container. Good luck keeping leftovers, however — you’ll want to devour the entire pan by yourself, it’s so good! 

SERVE WITH: Pull Apart Bread | Beer Bread | Cornbread | Dinner Rolls
