  1. Loved these! They were pretty spicy. I took another reviewers suggestion and added some kielbasa I had sliced and browned in olive oil to make it a meal.
  2. It was ok. Makes a nice quick lunch but a little too much of a kick for my taste even though I quite like spicy foods. I followed the recipe exactly as listed except I used fresh basil from the garden rather than dried. Would recommend cutting back on the amount of sriracha in this - Read more ...
  3. My husband was going to make spaghetti and just put sriracha on it and eat it with hot dogs. That sounded ok for a quick meal but I wanted something a bit more. I did a search on the internet for "sriracha spaghetti" and came across this recipe that used mostly ingredients I had on - Read more ...

  9. I do not eat noodles but my husband really enjoyed this! I made the recipe as-is except used whole wheat rotini and sesame oil (instead of egg noodles and peanut oil) as that's what I had on hand. I served this with grilled chicken and steamed broccoli. He said he is looking forward to having - Read more ...
  10. These are like a kicked up Asian-y version of buttered noodles and we LOVED them! I did adjust it a bit to suit our tastes but I still used all ingredients called for...I added more butter than called for (3 Tbsps.) only used 2 Tbsps. sriracha sauce added a bit of salt to taste and - Read more ...
