Spicy Thai Noodles

recipe from a small snippet 

We love Thai food. That being said cooking Thai food kinda freaks me out. Let's just say I had a really bad experience making a curry once. This recipe however is so simple and there are no "strange" ingredients that you see in some Thai recipes. You can vary how spicy it is by the amount of pepper flakes you use. We loved it and I will be making it often.  

1 box linguine pasta
1-2 Tbs crushed red pepper flakes (I used 1Tbs and it was plenty spicy for me
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. toasted sesame oil
6 Tbs honey (I used Agave
6 Tbs soy sauce
green onions, peanuts, cilantro  shredded carrots, toasted sesame seeds 

*I add some grilled chicken for protein 

Cook noodles. Drain. Chop onion, cilantro, peanuts. 
Combine oils and pepper flakes in small saucepan and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes. Strain out pepper flakes and reserve oil. To the reserved oil add honey and soy sauce. Whisk together then toss mixture with noodles. Add chicken or other protein if you wish. Before serving top each portion with green onions, cilantro, shredded carrots,  peanuts and sesame seeds (optional) Can be served warm or cold but I prefer warm.
