Sesame Noodles is an easy and tasty dish to make when you are in a hurry or when it is too hot outside to heat up the house with the stove. I got this recipe from The Pioneer Woman and never thought it would be a hit, especially with my Son-In-Law but I was so wrong. I made it for the first time around the first of May this year and have made it six times since and we are not even to the end of May. I just knew you all would love this – you just must boil water – and you too will be enjoying sesame noodles like our family. By the way, you can add vegetables that are cooked or small raw ones or chicken or shrimp — it’s a very versatile dish to say the least! Try it once and let me know how you liked it.
- 16 ounces angel hair pasta cooked and drained
- 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
- 2 Tablespoons Sugar
- 4 Cloves of Garlic Minced
- 2 Tablespoons Rice Vinegar
- 3 Tablespoons Pure Sesame Oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Hot Chili Oil
- 4 Tablespoons Canola Oil
- 4 whole Green Onions Sliced
You can add in any veggies and meats that you like but our family likes it plain as well – try it that way first, you’ll love it! Some people say the pasta was “oily” but I didn’t find it that way mostly because I changed the recipe to take 16 ounces of pasta instead of 12 ounce. If you want to use even more, it is very simple to double all the dressing ingredients. Most importantly, the sugar does not make the dressing sweet at all!
Cook the Angel Hair pasta (or whatever pasta you want) and drain. You may want to squirt a little olive oil inside and mix it up a bit, so it keeps from sticking.
Whisk all the rest of the ingredients together and then pour over top of noodles and mix it up – then dig in and eat it all up!

Sesame oil has such a great taste. Next time try adding some toasted sesame seeds as well.
