  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Mix the sugar and enough water to keep the mixture moist into the skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, about 6 minutes. Toss in the sprouts and peas, and cook and stir about 4 minutes, until heated through.

Delicious. I used some bottled Thai Chili Sauce instead of the paste and did pea pods instead of just peas. Used a touch more chili sauce than called for and left out the additional salt but kept everything else the same. Definitely a keeper. Read More

Not the best. It was really dry. The peas made it pretty gross and I like peas. Sorry but I won't be making this again Read More

Super-delicious spicy-hot noodles. Very quick and easy! The only change I made was sprinkling 1 Teaspoon sesame seed before serving....it gave the extra hint of authentic flavor! Read More

Yum!! this reminds of my favorite thai noodle dishes although it does not taste the same it could be a cousin of the pad thai dish. I changed it a little... I could not find chili paste so I used 1/4 cup "thai style chili sauce". I also added chicken and another egg. I will definetly make this again I think next time I will replace the peas with broccoli. The peas were good just want to try something different. Read More
