I'd had sesame noodles from the deli before, as more of a cold salad. But I figured they'd be good hot, too!

I was looking for a way to jazz up pasta, and found this recipe for sesame noodles on Pioneer Woman. I liked that we had all the ingredients on hand...except for sesame oil, that is. :/ Ironic, right? I used sesame seeds instead, browned a little in the frying pan.
My husband liked that it had a little bit of a kick to it, and he asks for this dish a lot now. In the above photo he actually asked me for the recipe and made it himself! You can adjust the spiciness, of course.
Also...did you know you can use any kind of thin noodle? We did use rice noodles above, but you can't really tell...regular spaghetti works just as well. If you're not a purist, I guess.
The only thing left to do now is to get some sesame oil and finally try it the real way!
