This Sesame Noodles recipe is a delightfully flavorful Asian dish sure to please even the pickiest eaters. It is so quick to toss noodles with a sauce made of garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and Tamari, then mix in healthy bell peppers.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions. (You want it to be al dente.)
In a large skillet or wok over medium heat add 2 tablespoons olive oil, bell pepper slices, and ½ teaspoon salt. Sauté for 7-9 minutes, or until peppers are tender.
While pepper and pasta are cooking, whisk together sesame sauce ingredients in a medium-sized bowl until combined. Add sesame sauce to skillet once peppers are cooked. Simmer sauce, while whisking occasionally, for 1 minute.
Add drained pasta to skillet and toss in sauce for 1-2 minutes over low heat.
Serve sesame noodles immediately with green onions and sesame seeds or refrigerate for 2 hours to serve cold. Enjoy!
