Sesame Noodles

This recipe is delicious, and honestly tastes even better the next day when the sauce soaks even more into the noodles.  It is a light dish with a delicate flavor, but it is very satisfying.  I serve it as a side dish, but if you add some more veggies and maybe some grilled chicken breast, it could easily be a main dish.  I used skinny angel hair pasta - any skinny pasta works with this dish - but if you find rice noodles in your grocery store, it really tastes good with those.  The amounts of each ingredient I use for the sauce is definitely changeable - when I make this I think the ratio changes every time.  Just taste the sauce before you put it on your noodles, and adjust it to your personal taste.


1 box angel hair noodles (or similar thin noodles or rice noodles)
1/4 cup soy sauce (I use low sodium soy sauce.)
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
4 cloves of minced garlic
2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
3 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon hot chili oil
4 tablespoon canola oil
4 green onions, thinly sliced
sesame seeds (optional)

1.  Cook the noodles.
2.  While the noodles are cooking, whisk all the ingredients except the green onions and (optional) sesame seeds together to form the sauce.  Taste and adjust to your liking.  

3.  While the pasta is till warm, pour the sauce over the noodles and mix to coat.

Pouring the Sauce.
4.  Sprinkle the pasta with the sliced green onions.  Serves 4-5 as an entree and 6-10 as a side dish.  Enjoy!  (How easy was that?)

Final product.
