My passion for Thai cuisine is no secret; listed below are some of my favorite Thai-inspired dishes. My love is inspired by my mother’s cooking and my enjoyment of favorite Thai restaurants in the area, like Dee Benson’s My Thai. Dee also taught us how to make the best fresh spring rolls and made them for us. I developed this recipe in an effort to use ingredients I could easily locate and recreate the flavor I love.

The best kind of meals are versatile ones like Easy Thai Noodles. I like to say ‘Dealer’s Choice’ with this dish. If I don’t have time to cook chicken when I get home, I’ll stop by the grocery store to buy a rotisserie chicken to shred and add to the dish because my family loves chicken with their noodles and I am happy to provide it because I do too. For my vegan and vegetarian friends, all you have to do is follow the recipe to make a delicious meal. Try sautéing shrimp or beef to add for a different variation if you’re a meat eater.

The majority of the meals I prepare are for the family’s dinner, but on occasion I’ll prepare something special for my husband’s work lunches. A good example is these Spicy Thai Noodles, which are way too spicy for the family but just right for him. Although they are very easy to make, these noodles are incredibly flavorful!

My husband loves anything spicy, but he actually discovered these on Pinterest, and I modified the recipe to suit him. Naturally, I want to share it with you all.

The fact that these noodles are made with regular pasta is one of their best features. There are no special noodles to look for in the supermarket; just regular spaghetti, linguine, or fettuccine. It also uses ingredients that you might already have in your refrigerator and pantry, which is awesome!


  • Know what heat level you can handle! There’s a big range of red pepper listed in the recipe, because I wanted you to be able to customize this to your tastes. Be warned, using 1 – 1 1/2 Tbsp will make this reallllly spicy!
  • These Thai noodles can be served hot, at room temperature or cold, so they’re totally versatile.
  • Garnish! Usually garnishes are optional and sort of a take it or leave it situation… for this recipe they really elevate the flavors and make it taste even better, so try them if you can.
  • Any long pasta will work here. I used linguine because that’s what I had, but spaghetti, fettuccine, angel hair, etc would work.

    Although this dish is by nature vegetarian, you can certainly add protein. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Chicken – sliced into strips
  • Pork – sliced into strips
  • Shrimp
  • Tofu – the baked method described HERE is our favorite!
  • These spicy Thai noodles are the perfect option the next time you want to spice up your typical weeknight dinner routine with something incredibly flavorful and bold!
