If you love Sesame noodles this is a very easy recipe and very healthy. I've adapted it just a tad from www.eatingwell.com to give it a sesame-infused boost. Their version has 287 calories. Mine has a bit more because I add toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds.
This can be a light main dish or a robust side dish.

How to Make Peanut-Ginger Noodles

Step-by-Step

  1. Put a large pot of water on to boil.
  2. Whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, garlic, chile-garlic sauce, sesame oil, and ginger in a large bowl.
  3. Cook pasta in the boiling water until not quite tender, about 1 minute less than specified in the package directions. Add vegetables and cook until the pasta and vegetables are just tender, 1 minute more. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid. Rinse the pasta and vegetables with cool water to refresh. Stir the reserved cooking liquid into the peanut sauce; add the pasta and vegetables; toss well to coat. Serve warm or chilled garnished with toasted sesame seeds.
