Spicy Thai Pasta Salad

I love this dish. People either love it or hate it. I like to bring it to Potlucks because it is unusual. People always seem scared to try it because of its uniqueness. Once they do 90% of them love it. To love it, you have to love spicy thai type food. If you don't like thai, you'll hate it.

2 pkg (12 oz) bowtie pasta

2-3 tsp crushed red pepper

6 TBSP corn oil

3/4 c sesame oil

9 TBSP honey

7 1/2 TBSP soy sauce

1 1/2 tsp salt

3/4 c chopped cilantro

1 1/4 c honey roasted peanuts

3/4 c chopped green onions

Cook pasta and drain well. In sauce pan stir red pepper and oils over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add honey, soy sauce and salt. Mix well and pour over pasta, coating evenly. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.* When ready to serve, add chopped cilantro, peanuts and green onions.

*You can refrigerate it for 4 hours, but it gets better the longer it sits so it's really much better if you let it sit overnight.
