Sesame Noodles

First off, I want to say that yes, my fiancee and I are working on fixing up my site a bit. I think it looks pretty damn good so far! Kramer’s done it all and it wouldn’t have been done at all if it weren’t for him. I’m very lucky to have him around for this sort of thing (because I know absolutely nothing about it). Either way, we’ll continue to tweek the site until we have it the way we want it, so if you see any errors, please let me know! He works full time and I’m working, doing summer school, and planning our wedding, so we’re both busy and will definitely miss a few things as we work on my blog’s “face-lift.”

Now, back to what’s important: food! These sesame noodles are very similar to my garlic noodles, but I used angel hair pasta to make these and they definitely have a stronger sesame taste rather than garlic. They’re absolutely delicious though, and I ate the leftovers for two days! The noodles have a greater depth of flavor than you’d expect, and are sure to please even the pickiest eaters. I used whole wheat pasta, but even without it, this dish isn’t something you’ll regret after having eaten it. It can be spiced up with some pork or chicken, but to be honest, I think it’d perfect all on its own. I can’t wait to make it again! Recipe after the jump.


Sesame Noodles
Your very few ingredients.

Sesame Noodles
Okay, so get ready for how insanely easy this dish is to make. First, cook your noodles, drain them, and set them aside.

Sesame Noodles
In a small, deep pan or a small sauce pan, combine the garlic, sugar, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Stir over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved, then remove from the heat.

Pour the sauce over the noodles and toss! Top with some green onions and toasted sesame seeds, if you like (but you don’t have to).

Enjoy!

      Laura: I’m sorry that happened to you! Did you let the noodles sit too long and allow the gluten in them to coagulate? That might have been what happened. Mine were super slippery, even after letting them sit and refrigerating them, so that’s all I can think of!

    Last time I tried to make a recipe similar to this, it was a disaster — *way* too much vinegar. This looks like it might be more reasonable proportions, I’ll give it a shot.

    I made these last night. They were really tasty, but my noodles totally stuck together after I poured the sauce on them. I don’t know why! Yours look so nice and separated. What did I do wrong?

    Excellent recipe. Made them tonight except I added shrimp fried in olive oil and garlic to the mixture. Everyone loved it. The sesame seeds and onion greens worked real well. I was amazed how good the sauce was despite the fact that there was so much vinegar! Thanks for posting it.

    I made these with some leftover regular (not whole-wheat) spaghetti the other week. They are amazing chilled the next day, when the flavors in the sauce have really had time to settle in together. Plus, they are a great make-ahead dish for a snack or appetizer.
