Every time I make these Easy Sesame Noodles I find myself wondering how something so quick and easy can be so delicious.
These noodles take less than 15 minutes to make. That’s right. Fifteen minutes! And everyone in my family loves them. Even the picky eaters love these noodles. I’m talking about the ones who usually turn their noses up at anything other than butter on Parmesan cheese on their pasta. And did I mention it only takes 15 minutes to get this meal on the table? You can use Japanese noodles if your supermarket carries them, angel hair, or any other type of long, thin pasta. I often use red pepper flakes in place of the hot chili oil. And you easily adapt this recipe to include protein or vegetables. Serve these Easy Sesame Noodles with a green salad and you’ve got a complete meal in practically no time.
