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.
Your very few ingredients.
Okay, so get ready for how insanely easy this dish is to make. First, cook your noodles, drain them, and set them aside.
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).
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 Tablespoons white sugar
- 6 Tablespoons rice vinegar
- 6 Tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 Tabelspoons sesame oil
- 1 16 oz. package of whole wheat angel hair pasta
- 3 T. toasted sesame seeds, for garnish (you can toast the seeds in a 350 degree oven while putting together the sauce)
- ½ cup chopped green onions, for garnish
- Place the first five ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves.
- Cook the pasta according to package instructions. Pour the sauce over the boiled and drained pasta, add the sesame seeds and chopped scallions, and mix thoroughly. That's it!
