My family is crazy for Noodles. Seriously!! We can have noodles for all 3 meals 🙂 I usually just make a big batch and tweak around a few recipes I have under my belt to concoct variations in Noodle dishes. My latest spin which I am calling “Sweet Chili Garlic noodles” are inspired by the flavors of a traditional Schezwan sauce. You can call it a “deconstructed Schezwan Noodles” if you wish 🙂 It comes together in 10 mins flat and you can pair this dish with just about any Oriental stir fry. Happy tummy guaranteed 😛

Love the vibrant color of this Sweet Chili Garlic Noodles with mixed veggies

I have to confess something here – I hate to serve plain rice with my Oriental dishes. I know that restaurants do that because they like the flavors of the stir fry to be the hero of the meal … but personally, I find that really un-inspiring!

The stir fry entrees are often not as spicy as I would love and then the plain rice further kills the heat and flavors for me. I often end up drowning my rice with loads of chili paste and sodium laden soy sauce 😛  The dish I have for you today is bit on the spicier side, but if you prefer something a little more kid-friendly, try my  my 10 min sesame garlic noodles.
