This is a recipe that Maria got from work.  It has been use often for get-togethers.


  • 1 box angel hair pasta
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sesame oil
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1/2 cup green onions
  • 2-3 tablespoons sesame seeds


  • Cook pasta.  While the pasta is cooking, heat the vegetable oil and the red pepper flakes.  Cook for 2 minutes, remove from heat.  Once the pasta is done, add the following – while the pasta is still hot: oil/pepper mixture you just heated, honey, soy sauce, sesame seed oil and salt.  Toss well and let sit overnight (it really should sit that long, otherwise the flavors just don’t get where they need to be).  Before serving, toss in cilantro, peanuts, green onions and sesame seeds.  Toss well and top with a handful more sesame seeds.

Don’t forget to add the soy sauce (I made sure to add it to the recipe directions). Oops.
