I love anything with Sesame - sesame chicken especially - and I have been hoarding two recipes for sesame noodles for some times now. I laughed when I realized they were the exact same recipe! So I figured, it must be good, right? This recipe couldn't be easier to prepare and was just what my taste buds were looking for. Flavorful, yet not overpowering - the perfect Asian side dish.
3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
6 Tbsp. rice vinegar
6 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. dark sesame oil
1 lb. uncooked pasta (I used spaghetti, but any long pasta will work)
3 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds (I didn't have any on hand, so I omitted)
1/2 c. chopped scallions
Place the first five ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves. Toast the seeds in a 350 degree oven, just until slightly golden.
