Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Transfer pasta to a serving bowl and toss with olive oil.
  2. Whisk soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, sesame seeds, chili sauce, and sesame oil together in a bowl until sugar dissolves. Toss soy sauce mixture with pasta; top with green onions, red bell pepper, and snap peas. Refrigerate 30 minutes to overnight to allow flavors to blend. Toss again before serving.

I made it this weekend for a family function, everyone loved it! However, I did add a couple of what I thought were essentials. I squeezed in the juice of 1 fresh lime, 1 clove of fresh garlic, crushed and about 1/2 tbsp of freshly grated ginger. Threw the ingredients in my mimi food processor and whipped it up. Wow, the flavors just popped! Used a variety of whole grain pastas, bow ties, fusilli and mini penne, delightful and healthy!

You had me at 'pasta' and 'sugar snap peas'. Didn't change a thing and it makes a stand-alone meal for me. Of course, it's easy to add chicken thigh meat or shrimp which I will probably do next time. Thank you.

I really wasn't sure what "sweet" chili sauce was, so I added some Heinz chili sauce and then some Asian chili sauce (hot). I've made a lot of Asian pasta salads, and although we enjoyed this, I think it's really lacking freshly-minced ginger. If I make this again, I definitely will add that to the recipe.
