Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package spaghetti

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

  • 2 teaspoons sweet chili sauce

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped (Optional)

  • 1 cup sugar snap peas (Optional)

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Transfer pasta to a serving bowl and toss with olive oil.

  2. Whisk soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, sesame seeds, chili sauce, and sesame oil together in a bowl until sugar dissolves. Toss soy sauce mixture with pasta; top with green onions, red bell pepper, and snap peas. Refrigerate 30 minutes to overnight to allow flavors to blend. Toss again before serving.
