Sesame Noodles

For a while there, it seemed everywhere I looked there was  a sesame noodle recipe!

Now, I don't see this so much ... wonder why?


It's a favorite in the household and a great party carb to have on hand for those get togethers ...

Hubby loves this stuff and was actually asking me the other day why I haven't made it lately. Ummm, the last time was a BBQ holiday, probably Labor Day, 2014? Whoa....time to make it soon now that summer is fast approaching!

It's a really fast, easy AND frugal recipe to throw together and everything can be done while the noodles cook. I've modified the heck out of it to use what I had on hand the first time I made it, and well, it was good so I stayed with it!


1 lb thin pasta (angel hair, thin, or just plain ole spaghetti will work.)
1/2 cup soy sauce (I use my JCS Soya Sauce, it's nice and thick, not thin and runny)
2 tbs sesame oil
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
2 tbs sugar
2 tbs chopped cilantro (optional, my Hubby hates cilantro)
1 tbs ginger root, can use powdered stuff (or the tube refrigerated stuff, which is what I use)
1 tsp hot chili oil ( I never have this on hand so I use crushed red pepper flakes or the stuff in tube if I have)
1 cup green onions (less is better, very strong flavor if a full cup is used)
1 cup snow peas
small handful of sesame seeds toasted in a skillet (optional)
handful of thin sliced red peppers (optional, I used those peppers below)

Aldi, Aldi and ALDI!

Cook pasta according to directions. Rinse in cold water to cool down.

In a LARGE bowl, mix remaining ingredients except the onions, snow peas AND red pepper if using.

Put pasta in bowl and toss to coat evenly.


Add onions, snow peas and pepper stir gently and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cover bowl and stick in the refrigerator to chill well before serving so all the ingredients can mix and mingle and get ready to party as well!

Enjoy!

Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!

  3. Your Sesame Noodles look amazing! Isn't it funny how we make a recipe a lot for a long time and then forget about it for a while? That happens to me all the time. I'm glad you are making this recipe again - and that you've shared it with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop. Thank you!
