Variations and flavors for this Spicy Noodles
Hot Ramen noodles: step up the game and use Ramen noodles instead of the pasta and add a bit vegetable broth to your taste.
Thai rice noodles: use rice noodles for more variation.
Spicy Thai Noodles: recently I mixed 2 Tbs peanut butter in these noodles which turned out so creamy and delicious.
I could imagine almond butter would work really good as well. Use water if it needs to be more liquid, which will depend on the used nut butter and its texture.
