Honey Sriracha Pasta

Jump to Recipe

It’ sort of spaghetti but really not! Tomatoes, ground meat, and pasta are all where it gets rather different. It’s almost Thai-style spaghetti, in terms of flavors. Honey Sriracha Pasta has got a sweet and spicy flavor pop that you are going to love. Yes, it’s got a little bit of heat, but really it’s the flavor of the spice not the heat that you taste the most.

Honey Sriracha Pasta

This is a quick and easy recipe to throw together with ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen! That’s what makes it so simple – it’s really just a new combination of common ingredients. And you could sub in all sorts of things – use ground beef instead of ground turkey. Use tomato puree instead of crushed tomatoes. Add different veggies if you don’t have bell peppers – like mushrooms.

Honey Sriracha Pasta

I didn’t serve this pasta with a side dish because it’s pretty hearty and filling. But you could totally add a side salad if you need to stretch it out or want to make sure to have leftovers. I almost always have side salad fixings in my fridge, in case I want to make a quick lunch. Typically that means greens, carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes (for the ones that like that), a little cheese, dressing and maybe some croutons if we have it.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
