Sesame Thai Noodles with Vegetables

  • This is a great quick vegetarian dinner ready to go from start to finish in 20 minutes.  Pre-cut all your vegetables, then while you cook the pasta mix sauce.  My family loved this.  For those that like extra heat, you can garnish with red pepper.

  • Cook pasta according to directions:
  • 12-14 ounces spaghetti, linguine, or angel hair pasta

  • Sauce (Make while pasta is cooking)
  • 2 TBS cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 2 medium cloves garlic , minced or pressed through garlic press
  • 1 TBS minced fresh ginger (don't settle for dried!  This is a critical ingredient!)
  • 5 TBS soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce (or Tabasco)
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 2 TBS toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp salt

While pasta drains, toss the following into pasta pan and stir fry for 3 minutes on high:
  • 4 green onions, sliced thin on diagonal
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 red, yellow, or orange bell pepper sliced into strips
  • 1 c. pea pods (whole or cut in half)

  • Add cooked pasta to pan.  Stir in Sauce and add:
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • sesame seeds for garnish
  • chopped peanuts for garnish (optional)
