A satisfying, flavor-filled noodle dinner doesn’t come together more easily and quickly than this. Hoisin provides salty-sweet umami in the no-cook sauce, ginger provides fresh, peppery punch, and chili-garlic sauce (or Sriracha) adds balancing heat along with allium notes. We use linguine here because its shape resembles udon, a type of thick, chewy Japanese wheat noodle; if you happen to have udon in the pantry, by all means, use it. Dried lo mein works well, too.

We like it hot here - living in California, we have a BIG southwest influence, with plenty of peppery heat all around us. So we were flabbergasted when we couldn't eat this dish because it was simply too hot. We used 3 Tbps of chili garlic sauce (a staple in our pantry; we go through 3-4 jars every year); we topped it off with 1 Tbps of Sriracha for a little added complexity (esp since the recipe states you can use either). Being familiar with Mr. Kimball's shyness when it comes to heat and spice, we couldn't believe his publication included a recipe that was simply too hot for us to eat.

This is a very tasty recipe, and was a perfect complementary side dish for an Asian meal. I used udon noodles because they come in 8 oz. packages, so I didn't need to figure out what to do with the 4 oz. leftovers from a 1 lb. package of pasta. It had a wee kick, but nothing near what Kevin S. stated. I suspect then that it had to do with the Sriracha, which I did not use. Thanks again Mr. Cox and Milk Street team!

This was super easy and delicious. I admit that I only used 2 tablespoons of the chili-garlic sauce.

This is way too spicy, none of us were able to eat it - including the hot sauce lovers! A QUARTER CUP of chili garlic sauce or sriracha is WAY too much, next time I'll try it with maybe a tablespoon or so. Besides the insane heat, the flavor is really good and it comes together really quickly.
