Teriyaki Pasta

okay, so I'd like to start off by saying that this pasta is NOT authentic asian cuisine..I wish it was, I don't really know what it is..its just delicious. This meal came about because Daniel and I were getting ready to leave to California, and I had random left over veggies and chicken that I didn't want to toss once I got back..you get the point, so I just came up with this randomly..and since then, it has become one of my favorites..so here it is!

You'll need..

Red Onion
4-5 Garlic Cloves
Teriyaki Sauce (see pic)
Chicken Breasts
Your Choice of Noodles
Crushed Red Pepper
Olive Oil

I start by grilling my chicken, seasoned with a bit of salt & pepper, once done, set aside..and dice.
..Then I grab my wok spray vegetable oil spray, and throw in my diced brocolli, a pinch worth of diced garlic, and cook it, until its semi-soft..you dont want it to soft, but you don't want it to taste raw. 
Once I see its about where I want it to be..I throw in my zuchinni..and more garlic! I love garlic..

Once your zuchinni is done you can set it aside..and cook your mushrooms

and lastly..your diced red onion..once everything is cooked everything should be set aside. Meanwhile you can cook your pasta, I used egg noodles..whatever that means, does anyone know? But I've used spaghetti noodles, and its just as good!
grilled veggies
grilled chicken
this is where it alll comes together, once the pasta is cooked & drained, I grab my wok, turn on my burner at a medium heat level, add a teeny bit of Olive Oil, throw in as much pasta as you want per dish..I don't make a big batch of this..it would probably get really gross, and the pasta would get hard..and yea just not good. So I make it individually, and where was I? Okay grab a handful of pasta, a mix of your cooked veggies, some fresh spinach leaves, cooked chicken, more garlic, crushed red pepper, your diced tomatoes..and of course the teriyaki sauce..I eyeball it, but I would say about 2-3 tablespoons per individual dish..

Everything in wok!

.and mix it all together..you want everything to be coated with garlic, red pepper flakes, and the teriyaki

I mix each dish about 3-4 minutes..I like my pasta a little burned..and my tomatoes sauteed a little..but not to soft.

And that is it..my wanna be asian dish..haha.
