Ingredients:

Asian Spaghetti Ingredients

  • 226g uncooked angel hair pasta
  • 220g sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 220g fresh snow peas
  • 227g shredded carrots
  • 4 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tbsps reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted


Ingredients Notes:

  • You can substitute angel hair pasta with any other types of pasta of your choice
  • You can used canned button mushrooms if you do not have any fresh mushrooms on hand
  • Don't like snow peas? Swap it out to another green color vegetable of your favorite choice
  • Too much onions? Just reduced the amount of green onions used, if you want to
  • Switch out the canola oil to another healthy choice of cooking oil if you preferred to
  • You can substitute fresh garlic clove to those pre-prepared bottles of minced garlic
  • If halfway through cooking and you realized it tastes a little too salty, just add a splash of water to slightly dilute the saltiness of the soy sauce
  • You can omit sesame seeds to another vegetable garnish of your choice if you're not a fan of sesame seeds


Cooking Directions:

Asian Spaghetti Cooking Directions

  • Cook pasta according to package directions
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the mushrooms, snow peas, carrots and onions in oil until crisp-tender
  • Add minced garlic; cook 1 minute longer
  • In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar and cayenne.
  • Drain pasta
  • Add pasta and soy sauce mixture to skillet and toss to coat and heat through
  • Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds


Cooking Direction Notes:

  • If you had prepared the ingredients before hand, you can start cooking the ingredients as soon as you toss the pasta into the boiling water to cook as it does take a while to saute the various vegetables
  • Alternatively, you can place a lid onto the skillet and let the heat take care of the saute-ing, if you prefer
  • I normally cook my pasta to almost to the point of al dente and switched off the fire. The heat from the boiling water will slowly further cook the pasta to al dente
  • Accidentally added too much cayenne pepper? Fret not! Just add a splash of water or tip in a small teaspoon of sugar to tone down the spiciness. Although I used quite a lot, it wasn't that spicy for me
  • Be sure not to add the salted water used for cooking pasta as a substitue for the soy sauce mixture, just trust me on this. The level of saltiness is different
