Prepare pasta as directed on pkg. Set aside. Spiral, chop, cut, and grate all other veggies (feel free to add them all to one big bowl or pot). Prepare the sauce in separate bowl. Mix all sauce ingredients together adding more seasoning if desired (more chili paste or garlic for more spice- more herbs and lime for a fresher dish)

Add noodles to bowl with veggies. Toss. Add sauce slowly tossing as needed. Serve cold/room temp.  ** If adding tofu/nut or meat feel free to add on top of pasta or toss with it.

*My favorite with this is dish a side of shelled shrimp cooked in coconut oil, garlic, cayenne, and lime juice. Enjoy!
