This makes a fabulous lunch and is easy to bring to work, just throw some in a container or large mason jar, pack a fork and you are good-to-go!
I enjoy this best served at room temperature, which makes it a perfect picnic item as well.
Use a mason jar to make the marinade/sauce, it is easy to store , shake and pour.
Use linguini noodles or any Asian noodles you may enjoy.
As soon as noodles are finished cooking, quickly rinse with cold water to cool down, strain, blot dry and then add 1/2 of the sauce toss, add in veggies and shortly before serving add the rest of the sauce.
Sauce pools under the noodles so toss often.
The spicier the better is my motto when it comes to these, however I do make a non-spicy portion as well for my kiddos. I am easing them into hot & spicy foods. They are beginning to appreciate spice, especially my son however they are just not on their parents level…YET!
Enjoy!! – Colleen
Sesame Noodle Recipe
- 1 pound of linguine cooked to package directions
- 1 red pepper slice into toothpick-like slices (Add more or less based on your preference for peppers)
- 4-5 scallions sliced thin both the white and green
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 2 TBS red wine vinegar or rice wine vinegar
- 2 TBS olive oil
- 3 TBS sesame oil in the Asian section of the grocery store
- 1 TBS sugar
- 1 1/2 TBS chili sauce with garlic in the Asian section of the grocery store add in more for spicy flavor
- While your salted water comes to boil. Make your sauce first by combining the soy sauce, vinegar, olive oil, sesame oil, sugar and chili sauce with garlic. Shake vigorously in a mason jar or pop the sauce in your blender for a minute to mix well.
- As soon as you drain your noodles, run them under cold water until cool. Blot noodles dry with paper towels. Give sauce a quick shake, add half of it to the noodles, stir well with tings to combine.
- Slice pepper and scallions.
- Assemble the dish by adding the peppers and scallions. I usually do this in the pot I made the pasta in then turn out the coated noodles in the serving dish. Toss well and add remaining sauce just before serving, tossing well once again.
