Speedy Chinese Noodles

If I had to pick one food to eat on a daily basis, it would be noodles. In fact, when I was a stay-at-home mom with two little toothless boys, it was our daily meal. And, we never got tired of eating noo-noos. The kids still love what they call "seasoned noodles" - cooked noodles tossed with olive oil and garlic salt. But, I've evolved a little from the seasoned noodles days and like to shake things up a bit. I still like to keep things simple though and this recipe fits the bill. It's from Gooseberry Patch's Homemade Christmas, copyright 2010. And, it's my new favorite.

Speedy Chinese Noodles

1/4 c. oil
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1/8 to 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
8-oz. pkg. thin spaghetti, cooked
2 to 4 tbsp. soy sauce
Garnish: chopped green onions

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes; cook and stir for two minutes. Add cooked spaghetti and toss well. Stir in soy sauce and heat through. Garnish servings with chopped onions. Makes 6 servings.

Simple sauce: olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes sauteed for a minute or so.

Toss in the cooked noodles and soy sauce.

Sprinkle on the green onions. These noodles get a little kick with the red pepper flakes. I'm in love!
