This is another Barefoot Contessa recipe I love,but made changes to. Instead of honey,I use brown sugar. I use hot spicy peanut butter and omit the cayenne, I also add a teaspoon of garlic chili sauce. I also add thin slices of cucumber and carrots. I omit the tahini and add 1/2 c regular,creamy peanut butter.
It's delicious!
My sister in law makes it and adds crushed peanuts just before serving. Make it your own,I don't think Ina would mind!

How to Make Szechuan Noodles

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the garlic and ginger in a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Add the vegetable oil, tahini, peanut butter, soy sauce, sherry, sherry vinegar, honey, chili oil, sesame oil, and ground peppers. Puree the sauce.

    Add a splash of oil to a large pot of boiling salted water and cook the spaghetti al dente. Drain the pasta in a colander, place it in a large bowl, and while still warm, toss with 3/4 of the sauce. Add the red and yellow bell peppers and scallions; toss well. Serve warm or at room temperature. The remaining sauce may be added, as needed, to moisten the pasta.
