How do you feel about spicy food? Do you crave it like I do? Sometimes you just need a nice kick to your food … and that’s where recipes like this Gluten Free Spicy Noodles recipe come into play. This dish is seriously delicious and seriously simple!

Start with red lentil spaghetti from Explore Cuisine. This pasta is full of protein and flavor! While that boils, chop the cilantro, peanuts, green onions and red chili. Once the pasta is done you simply heat up the oils and make the dressing, then you toss everything together and refrigerate for as little as 1 hour or up to overnight.

This dish can be made the night before, so you can pack it up for lunch to bring to work the next day. Or make it in the morning and serve it for dinner. It’s a convenient and satisfying dish that will fulfill those spicy cravings!

This looks delicious!!! I so love and miss Pasta!! I am hesistant to try Lentil pasta after having it once before and winding up glutened. Ugh…cross contamination at the pasta company.

Yeah, cross contamination is definitely not fun and it can make you distrust certain foods, but just look for brands that are certified gluten free and made in dedicated GF facilities to be on the safe side. The brand I used here is certified GF.
