I have an obsession with spicy Asian noodle dishes. Pad Thai, vegetable lo mein, super-spicy peanut sauce, you name it. I’ve spent years trying to perfect my own home recipe. But after countless tries, I’ve always come up short. Until now.

I found two recipes that not only (finally!) satisfies my craving for a homemade noodle dish that tastes as good as takeout, but may have forever changed the way my family thinks of spaghetti and meatballs! These recipes are brilliantly simple. Lo mein noodles and mini-meatballs become something special with the help of two easy sauces.

As is, the recipes both have a little heat, but nothing my 3-year-old daughter couldn't handle. You can easily adjust the spice in either recipe by upping or lowering the amount of chili paste. Give these a try; they might just become new family favorites.
