Loverose’s Quick 5-Minute Chinese Noodles – Chinese Food
Loverose’s Quick 5-Minute Chinese Noodles Recipes
- 1⁄4 cup low sodium soy sauce (or to taste)
- 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped (do not mince the garlic finely)
- fresh ground black pepper(optional)
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1large green onion, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (or adjust to heat level)
- 1⁄2 lb spaghetti (regular or thin)
- Cook the spaghetti in boiling water until al dente (it is best to slightly under cook) drain then rinse well under cold water, then drain again; transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate until cold.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add in the chopped garlic and chili flakes, cook stirring for 2 minutes.
- Add in the cold spaghetti and toss using long tongs until the pasta is hot.
- Pour the soy sauce over the hot pasta and continue tossing with tongs adding in more soy sauce if needed until you have the desired flavor that you want.
- Season with black pepper if desired.
- Transfer to a bowl then toss with chopped green onions.
I make this often it’s easy and a great way to use up leftover cooked spaghetti, after you chop the garlic and green onions this takes only about 5 minutes to make, the amounts listed are really only a guideline you may use any amount of spaghetti and adjust all other ingredients to suit your taste — I have left the chili flakes as optional you may omit or adjust to heat level, we like spicy so I always use lots! — make certain to use only cold spaghetti for this, you may use cooked Chinese soba noodles if desired in place of the spaghetti, I like to add in a few teaspoons sesame oil also while cooking, prep time does not include cooking the spaghetti

A very good, budget-friendly, have all the ingredients on hand recipe! I used a linguini pasta. I liked the addition of a few shakes of sesame seed oil that I did.

I loved these noodles and my husband was a HUGE fan. He has never, ever went back for seconds on any kind of pasta dish (he’s more of a steak man) but he could not stop eating this and said “I would have this again tomorrow!” I think thats the first time he has ever said that about a recipe. I did add some chicken since I was serving these for the main course but they would be great with beef or served on their own as a side. Thanks for another winner LoveRose’s

Excellent! I have made this about 4 times in the last 2 weeks. My 2 year old an 4 year old LOVE it! I have made eggrolls to go with this but it’s a meal in itself. Thanks again Kittencal for another great recipe!

A Gezillion Stars! 🙂 How can something so fast and easy be SO Good.Better than any chinese restaurant. I used 3 T veg. oil and 1 T dark Sesame oil.Otherwise as listed. I use “Dreamfields” Pasta, which is made with White Whole Wheat grown in Canada. It has only 5 digestable carbs and does not have that awful brown look and gritty taste of other w.w. pasta. I”ll be making this a lot. Had 2 pieces of bacon left from btreakfast and some shrimp from last nights supper and thru that in too. My huisband snarfed it down. 🙂 Thanks for this recipe.

I can’t remember anymore how many of Loverose’s recipes I’ve made….but I’m never disappointed and this recipe is no exception. We made this to go with Crispy Ginger Beef and it was a great choice. Thanks so much for posting!

Delicious. Made a very nice light supper. Normally, I like to make a recipe exactly as written for the first time, but I had some green pepper and mushrooms that needed using up, so I added them in. I don’t believe they altered the taste in any way. I also added the optional sesame oil at the end and omitted the pepper flakes. Personal preference. 🙂
