CPK’s Kung Pao Spaghetti

4 Apr


I used to go to California Pizza Kitchen all the time for their Kung Pao Spaghetti, that is until I learned how to make it on my own at home.  I use this recipe and as always adjust to my taste.  The list of ingredients might seem daunting to some but it is quite an easy dish to make.  I didn’t know how I’d feel about kung pao and spaghetti together but I find it amazingly delicious!

Green onions, dried red chili peppers and peanuts add not only color but a little bit of kick to the dish.

The sauce.

Solid ingredients mixed together.

Kung Pao Spaghetti

Kung Pao Spaghetti served with mandarin salad w/sesame dressing and garlic cheese bread.

The adjustments I usually make to the dish

  • Sometimes I like to add a little more  chicken stock because I like a little bit more sauce and I don’t want it to get too thick.
  • I like to use cooking soy sauce so the sauce doesn’t get too salty.
  • Add extra green onions because I like green onions.
  • Adjust the amount of chili paste according to who I am cooking for, some people find it too spicy.

Hope you all try this out or if you are too lazy to make it yourself, head to the nearest CPK and enjoy!

Happy Monday everyone!
