Noodles of any form are always a winning dinner. These spicy chili garlic noodles come together so quickly and easily, and are full of delicious flavor.

The sauce is made with a mix of some of my favorite Asian flavors like soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, ginger, and toasted sesame oil. The marinade is one of my favorites to date, and can be used to coat fish, chicken or even tofu!

The best noodles for this recipe

Using a wide noodle is ideal for this recipe since it absorbs the most amount of flavor. Any type of pasta will work, but wide rice noodles or any thicker pasta strand are my go-to for this recipe.

The sauce is bursting with spicy flavor, and made with just a few simple ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need to make chili garlic noodle sauce:

  • shallots, garlic and ginger for your base flavor
  • low-sodium soy sauce
  • green onions
  • chili garlic sauce
  • rice vinegar
  • sesame seeds
  • coconut sugar

  • Combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, coconut sugar, chili garlic sauce, rice vinegar, salt, and sesame seeds in a bowl and whisk together. Pour it into the pan and stir together over low heat for another 3-5 minutes.
