Healthy Spicy Thai Noodles

This original recipe had a lot more oil, but I found that just cutting it out significantly didn't sacrifice any flavor and made it a kajillion times healthier!  I calculated it out and it is 7 Weight Watchers PP for 1 cup, prepared this way.  Not bad for a very unique flavor in the WW world!!  

{What you need}
1 box whole wheat linguine pasta
1 Tblsp crushed red pepper (or less if you don't like it too spicy)
1/4 cup sesame oil
6 Tblsp honey
6 Tbsp soy sauce
1 cup cooked chicken, shredded
green onions, chopped
cilantro, chopped
peanuts, chopped (adds points)
carrots, slithered 

Boil the linguine according to box directions, drain.  Heat sesame oil and crushed red pepper in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Strain out pepper and reserve oil.  To the oil, whisk in the honey and soy sauce.  Toss chicken and sauce mixture with noodles.  Serve cold or hot (I prefer cold) with green onions, cilantro, peanuts, and carrots on top.
