Ingredients

8 oz
vermicilli, thin spaghetti, or angel hair pasta
salt
1/2 c
coarsely chopped cilantro
1/4 c
chopped peanuts
1/4 c
thinly sliced green onions
1/4 c
sliced and chopped red bell pepper

1/4 c
corn oil or grapeseed oil
3 Tbsp
dark sesame oil
1/2 tsp
crushed dried red pepper or chili powder

Step-By-Step

1Cook the paste in a large saucepan in salted boiling water according to package directions. Drain but DO NOT rinse.

2While the pasta is cooking, prepare the dressing. In a microwave safe dish, heat the vegetable oil, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes in the microwave on high heat for 2 minutes. Add the honey and soy sauce and mix well.

3Combine the drained pasta with the dressing in a large bowl until the pasta is well coated. Cover and chill for several hours.

4When ready to serve, mix in the cilantro, peanuts, green onions, and red bell pepper. Garnish with the toasted sesame seeds.
