I loooovveee spicy food! I put sriracha or hot sauce on everything and the hotter the spice in a dish, the more I like it! These spicy sesame noodles are easy to make and you can control how hot you like your noodles! I like to make them for meal prep as a lunch because they taste great cold or hot so they are super versatile! You can use rice noodles, linguine or even a thin spaghetti. I have included my suggested veggies in the recipe below, but feel free to customize and add or remove any veggies you would like!!
These noodles save for about 3 days in the fridge and you might need to add a dash of soy sauce to them before you eat them as the noodles like to soak up the sauce!
