Quick and Easy Sesame Noodles

I was looking for an easy dish to make for dinner without having to make a trip to the grocery store. This fit the bill! The only thing I didn't have was green onions so I used chives instead. I love green onions and next time I will be sure to include them! Regardless, this was a breeze to prepare and quite tasty. I didn't have hot chili oil so instead I used red pepper flakes (which make a pretty garnish, too) and used 1 tbsp hot sesame oil and 2 tbsp regular sesame oil. My variations gave it just the perfect amount of kick! Recipe slightly adapted from Let's Dish.


Ingredients:
12 ounces thin spaghetti
¼ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons sesame oil
½ teaspoon hot chili oil (or chili pepper flakes)
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons hot water (can use pasta water)
3-4 green onions, sliced
Sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)

Directions:
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, whisk remaining ingredients (except green onions) together in a large bowl. Pour drained noodles into bowl with soy sauce mixture and toss until noodles are evenly coated. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds and serve.

looks great (+ like you said, easy to make!) - i'll definitely have to add this to my to-try list for the future, especially because we usually have all of those ingredients in the house. thanks! (found you through danielle's link party, by the way). =)

Beautiful picture! My kids love sesame noodles. I've transitioned them to whole grain spaghetti and they don't even notice because the soy sauce usually adds color to regular pasta.

What a great idea for leftover noodles from pasta night. We just had some leftover the other night and would have loved to do this with them!
I am hoping to make avocado hummus for game night on Friday - I'll let you know how it turns out!! :-)

You sound like me - if I don't have it, I improvise. I love sesame noodles, and your recipe is delicious - perfect for an upcoming office potluck.

@Katy I hope you like the avocado hummus! I think I mentioned this in my post, but I liked it best at room temp instead of refrigerated for an hour like I do with regular hummus.

your dish looks and sounds so good. i think I'd go with chives like you did here, not a big fan of green onions. Thanks for sharing

Have a wonderful day Christina

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your
intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving
us something informative to read?
