First, boil a pot of salted water. If you’re using spaghetti, fettucini, or another type of dried noodle, it will take about 8 minutes for the pasta to cook. If you’re using a fresh noodle, it will take about 2 minutes.

Off to the side, in a bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon of spicy chili oil per each cup of noodle that you’re making, with soy sauce and garlic (specific proportions below).

When the noodles are cooked al dente, transfer directly from the water into the bowl with the chili oil prepared. Toss and sprinkle with some scallion on top. And that’s it! Super easy.
