Sesame Noodles Recipe

Here is yet another fantastic Chinese pasta dish- Sesame noodles. I usually serve this as a side dish as it calls for no meat at all, although you could add cooked chicken if you wanted. This recipe is very simple and the only work is preparing the sauce and cooking the noodles. You can use a variety of different pastas, spaghetti, linguini, vermicelli, ect. If you enjoy cooking Asian dishes chances are you already have quite a few of these ingredients on hand already. This recipe calls for safflower oil, if you cannot find it (or if you just prefer) you can use vegetable oil instead. This makes a perfect side dish for any Asian meal. Enjoy.

    This dish was okay. There was too much of something, even though I followed the recipe exactly as written. Perhaps it’s just my taste.

    I’ve never had sesame noodles before so I tried this recipe. It was good and very easy.

    I made a small batch of this today and it was really good. I paired it with enoki and beef rolls, and sprinkled some chili flakes on my parents’ plates. We just had this for a snack, and they were all praises for the dish. Thank you!
