"I make this often it's easy and a great way to use up leftover cooked spaghetti, after you chop the garlic and green onions this takes only about 5 minutes to make. Amounts listed are really only a guideline you may use any amount of spaghetti and adjust all other ingredients to suit your taste. I have left the chili flakes as optional you may omit or adjust to heat level, we like spicy so I always use lots. Make certain to use only cold spaghetti for this, cooked Chinese soba noodles will work great also. I like to add in a few teaspoons sesame oil also while cooking, prep time does not include cooking the spaghetti"

I scaled the recipe back for 2 serves and used soba noodles but was wishing I made more as it was so delicious but portion wise what we had was right. Thank you Kittencal, made for Alphabet Soup tag game.
