  • 1 (12 ounce) package uncooked egg noodles

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic

  • ½ bunch fresh spinach, stems removed, chopped

  • ¼ cup chile paste

  • 3 tablespoons ketchup

  • 1 egg

  • ½ teaspoon white sugar

  • ¼ cup water

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • ½ cup fresh bean sprouts

  • ½ cup green peas


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, cook the egg noodles 6 to 8 minutes, until al dente, and drain.

  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the garlic about 1 minute. Stir in the spinach, and cook about 1 minute. Mix in the cooked egg noodles, chile paste, and ketchup, and toss until well coated.

  3. Make a hole in the center of the noodle mixture. Place the egg in the center, and scramble, tossing with the noodles just before egg is finished cooking.
