You might want to double up on the sauce ingredients and increase the pasta amount slightly. This sauce is better if prepared a day or even two days in advance and refrigerated, to allow the flavors to blend, but allow to sit until room temperature before using. This makes a great side dish!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a blender, blend the sauce ingredients until smooth.
  2. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Just before mixing with the sauce and serving, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until JUST firm-tender (do not overcook the pasta) drain and rinse well under cold water; drain well again.
  4. Toss the cooked pasta with the prepared sauce (if the sauce was chilled then warm before mixing with the pasta).
  5. Sprinkle with chopped cashews and serve.

These rock. I am a fatty sauce fiend, so I used one 16 ounce box of noodles and doubled up on the sauce! I also did not let the sauce sit before tossing with the noodles due to time constraints, and it was still completely awesome, but next time I will definitely do it the way the recipe says. Thanks Kittencal, I will be making these again and again!

What a nice and spicy dish. Followed the recipe exactly using 1 tsp. red pepper. Cooked up 1/2# angel hair pasta. Garnished with green onion. Served with Kitten's Asian Hoisen Pork Ribs (made with chicken) #151871. Delicious.

My husband and I loved this dish! I must say, I only used 1/4 tsp. of the red pepper flakes and only 1 tbls. of the sesame oil. I made half the noodles and used all the sauce. Thank you for a yummy dish!
