Simple recipe to embellish any dish. Main Dish or as a side dish, this recipe can add a kick and zing to your table.

"Very simple dish, which is perfect as a side dish when you are making other Asian dishes. I didn't think the pepper was too over the top, but my 6 y/o did. Everyone else like it. You can add to the recipe to make it seem a little fancier, such as, added chopped green onion for garnish. Great job."


1/2 pound Oriental noodles
2 tablespoon Soy sauce
2 cloves Garlic; chopped
1/4 cup Vegetable oil
1 teaspoon Sesame oil
1 tablespoon Pepper flakes; (Like the ones in the pizza parlours)

Original recipe makes 2



(My mother knew this recipe so well, she didn't write any instructions)

Possibly saute garlic in oil, add the rest into the cooked oriental noodles and toss.

The instructions are only from memory. try not to quote me... yet :)


When I pulled this from her recipe box, the note said " chili peppers too hot! try 1/2 teaspoon". I mis that gal.

Made for guests and was a big hit with the Breadless Tuna Melt. Kept well as leftover for lunch.

Everyone in my clan really liked this, so apparently I made it correctly even without instructions :- ) I cooked the noodles to package directions & sauteed the garlic in sesame oil. I then added some onion and green pepper and continues to saute. I then added the vegetable oil, soy sauce, a few sesame seeds, and pepper flakes to the pan and coated the noodles a few minutes. Using this method I would probably lower the amount of vegetable oil to 1/8 cup to make it a bit healthier but the flavor was pretty amazing.

I added diced red peppers and a little ginger to my noodles. came out amazing.. I didn't get photos this time but will for next time.

I added some veggies to make it a little healthier. I sauteed some onion, bell pepper, carrots, and kale it turned out delicious!

I made these noodles with chili paste instead of crushed red pepper. It ran out of the pepper, but it was still yummy!
