Spicy Thai Noodles

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I shared a ramen recipe last week that I thought couldn’t be topped. Until I made these Spicy Thai Noodles.

Holy WOW! My husband said these were better than last week’s ramen recipe… I don’t know if better is the right word, they are definitely different. Okay, they’re better. These noodles are super flavorful and very SIMPLE! In fact, you most likely have all of the ingredients at home already.

I made these for lunch yesterday, and I’m not joking when I said I ate 3 helpings. I had it for dinner too. And a late night snack. Granted, I’m pregnant and working out which means, I’m hangry… but still they are THAT. GOOD!

Save this recipe for tonight, later this week or this weekend. Enjoy!
