This super-simple recipe for Sesame Noodles requires just 15 minutes to make! They are flavorful enough to eat on their own and taste fantastic both warm and chilled.
Sesame noodles are a Chinese takeout favorite that can be served as an appetizer, main or side dish. They are tasty enough to eat on their own and can be enjoyed warm or chilled as a cold noodle dish. Thinly sliced carrot, red pepper or crushed peanuts can also be mixed in to add a bit of crunch.
Just like my recipe for Chinese Fried Rice, you could probably make this recipe in less time than it would take to get takeout. All you do is cook your pasta, whip up the sauce, toss your noodles in it and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions. Now you can toss those takeout menus and make perfect sesame noodles at home in 15 minutes flat!
