Recipe Box Swap: Spicy Noodles

July 3, 2008

The July edition of the Recipe Box Swap calls for BBQ main and side dishes. Since I know that at any given barbecue or potluck there will be ample beans and deviled eggs, I tend to bring something a little different. Spicy Noodles is one of our favorites. This is great alongside burgers or with any kind of chicken, pork, etc. We find ourselves actually craving this dish. You'll need to prepare this several hours or even a day before you plan to take it/eat it, as it is best cold.

Spicy Noodles

1/4 c. sesame oil
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 TB. sugar
2 TB red chili oil (a little more if you like it really spicy)
2 TB. balsamic vinegar
1 lb. vermicelli or thin spaghetti
1/4 c. sesame seeds, toasted
green onions (optional)

Whisk together dressing. Cook and rinse pasta. Toast sesame seed until lightly browned (about 250 for 10 min.). Toss everything together and garnish with green onions if desired. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour (preferably more) before serving.
