Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 2


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1 tablespoon scallions chopped
  • 4 ounces spaghetti
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Boil a salted pot of water for the noodles (I used spaghetti but feel free to use rice noodles or something else). Cook the spaghetti al dente according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, add all the other ingredients except for salt & pepper to a skillet. Once the pasta is a few minutes from being ready, turn the burner on medium heat. Let everything melt together and give it a good stir. It'll soon start to bubble. Let it bubble gently for a minute or so until the garlic cooks and the sauce thickens a bit.
  • Once the pasta is done, drain it and then add it to the skillet and toss it with the sauce. Season with salt & pepper as needed.


  • I count the prep time in the cook time since you can prep/make the sauce while the water for the noodles is boiling.
  • I garnished this dish with sesame seeds for the photos, but I don't think it's really necessary for the recipe if you don't happen to have any.
  • This is the handy grater/zester I use for the ginger.
