Sesame Noodles

I could not eat enough of these sesame noodles!  I ate two bowls :)  This recipe is so easy to make and only took me about 20 minutes to put together including cooking the pasta.  These sesame noodles would make a great side dish but you could add some chicken or other protein to make it a main dish.  The sesame sauce is so addicting too, you need to make this dish ASAP!  I also used toasted sesame oil from Trader Joe's but you could also use regular sesame oil.  You should be able to find most of the ingredients in your regular grocery store or asian market if not.  Feel free to add a little chili oil if you want some kick to the noodles.   Enjoy!

Sesame Noodles

1 pound linguine pasta
¼ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced


Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain well.

In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sugar, garlic, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and vegetable oil. 

Pour sesame sauce over warm noodles.  Toss to coat.  Top with green onions and toss to mix.
