This is really an easy & fast recipe and gets rave reviews in my house. I've modified the heck out of the original recipe to suit what I had on hand ... 1 lb chinese noodles (I use angel hair pasta, even thin pasta) 2 tbs sesame oil 1/2 cup soy sauce, low sodium 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar 2 tbs sugar 2 tbs cilantro, chopped (this is optional) 1 tbs ginger root, grated (or dry, or the stuff in a tube) 1 tsp hot chili oil (I never have this, use crushed red pepper flakes, or the stuff in tube, never have I used the oil though) 1 cup green onions (have never measured, just take a handful from plant & cut) 1 cup pea pods (I use snow peas) *I also add in a couple of tbs of sesame seeds that I toasted in skillet *Thin sliced red peppers are good too Cook pasta. Drain & rinse in cold water. In large bowl, mix remaining ingredients EXCEPT green onions & pea pods. Put pasta in bowl & toss to coat. Add green onions & pea pods, toss to coat. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over top if using. Best if chilled before eating.
