  • 3 bell peppers small, cut into thin strips
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt

Sesame Sauce:

  • ¼ cup soy sauce gluten-free, or Tamari sauce
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. sesame oil toasted
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp. ginger paste or crushed fresh ginger

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package directions. (You want it to be al dente.)
