Asian Style Sweet Chili Spaghetti with Cabbage

Craving some sweet and spicy vegetarian Asian style pasta? You have arrived!

Organic whole wheat spaghetti with sauteed cabbage in a soy chili sauce. A winner dish I invented the other night, and made us cry for more. I swear!

Originally I had planned on rice noodles, but I just didn’t have enough in the pantry, so the spaghetti came in very handy. And I am glad they did, because their nutty taste complemented the spice and sweetness of the chili sauce exceptionally.  I would not go back to the rice noodles. I added fresh shredded cabbage for the crunch, and some beaten egg to create a velvety coating.

We loved, loved, loved this Asian style pasta dish with cabbage. It is simple on the ingredients, but very complex on the taste!

Boost it up with some garlic sauteed shrimp. This will be my plan for next time. Can’t wait!

Serves 4.


*  12 oz. ( 350 g) organic whole wheat spaghetti

*  2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
*  1 small cabbage,chopped
*  1/2 cup vegetable ( chicken) broth
*  1/4 cup soy sauce
*  1 Tablespoon fish sauce
*  2 Tablespoons sweet chili sauce
*  2 eggs, beaten


Cook spaghetti al dente. Drain and set aside.

In the meantime, heat a big pan on medium heat and add the butter. Saute the cabbage in the butter for 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken broth and cook until cabbage is still crunchy. Mix in the soy sauce, fish sauce and chili sauce. Let cook for one more minute. Add the pasta to the cabbage mixture. Stir well and pour the eggs on top. Mix well and serve.

Lovely recipe and wonderful way to make spaghetti that is not the same old dish. I have never seen this before so I am anxious to try it out as it sounds really good.

My daughter would love this dish Kirsten. I'll have to toss it together next time she's at home.

What a great creation! My favorite part of this is that I have every single item on hand. Will be giving this a try.

I've never added cabbage to pasta before but it sounds amazing! I have more cabbage than I know what to do with, so this is a must try! 🙂

If its a noodle my family will gobble it up. When I go to the farm later this week, I'm going to pick up a fresh head of cabbage. The rest of the ingredients I have.

I bet my granddaughter, Maddie would love this–she's a "noodle girl!" This brings back memories of bringing Maddie home from Taiwan. Thank you for the recipe. XOXO
