Another recipe from Rachael Ray's April 2007 magazine with our variations. (We added shrimp and red peppers and left out the small head of Napa cabbage).
- 1 lb spaghetti
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3⁄4 lb chicken breast, cut into strips
- 1 lb frozen cocktail shrimp, thawed and de-tailed
- 1 bunch scallion, chopped into 2-inch pieces
- 4 -5 ounces mushrooms, sliced (original recipe calls for Shiitake)
- 1⁄2 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into pieces
- 6 garlic cloves, pressed
- 2 inches fresh ginger, peeled and grated
- 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
- 1⁄3 cup soy sauce (original recipe calls for tamari (dark soy sauce)
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
- Cook spaghetti until al dente. Drain in colander.
- While noodles cook, heat olive oil over high heat until rippling in a large nonstick skillet.
- Add chicken and stir fry till golden. Add scallions, mushrooms, red pepper, garlic and ginger and stir-fry 2 minutes. Add shrimp after 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.
- While spaghetti drains, add sesame oil and soy sauce to pasta pot. Add spaghetti and toss to coat.
- Either add stir-fry to noodles and toss to mix or serve stir-fry on top of noodles.
- Top with toasted sesame seeds.
Absolutely delicious the first night and terrific re-heated in the microwave the next; which can rarely be said for leftover pasta dishes.
This was fantastic! I loved the toasted sesame seeds in this. I omitted the shrimp, only because I didn't have any. But it was great without it. I used whole wheat linguine, because thats what I had on hand. I also cut back the size to make for one. All in all, great flavor and an easy recipe. Thanks anonymous for posting this recipe.
