  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Cook pasta

Make sauce

  • While pasta is cooking, whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, sugar, chili garlic sauce, dried ginger, garlic powder, and black pepper.

  1. If you prefer the original recipe from 2014, scroll down a bit and I've included it below for your convenience.
  2. These noodles aren't particularly saucy, but if you'd prefer them to be, just double all the sauce ingredients.
  3. If you'd prefer to use fresh garlic and ginger, use about 1 1/2 - 2 tsp of minced fresh ginger, and 2-3 cloves of finely minced garlic.
