(Optional) Garlic Oil:

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the noodles until al dente according to the package instructions. Set aside about ¼ cup of pasta water.

  • In a small saucepan, bring the garlic and oil to a boil over medium heat. Cook for about 2-3 minutes or until the garlic is lightly browned.

  • Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, Worcestershire sauce, stir to combine, and until warm enough. Turn off the heat immediately.
  • Add the cooked pasta and sesame oil into the skillet, stir to combine. Adjust seasoning with additional oyster sauce or soy sauce if needed. 
  • Stir in the parmesan and add a small amount of pasta water if the pasta is too dry to your liking.
  • Serve the noodles with chopped green onion and the optional garlic oil (about 1-2 teaspoon or as needed). Enjoy!
