Quick and Easy Sesame Noodles

September 18, 2013

Sesame noodles are a quick and easy meal.  Soba noodles are tossed in a hot wok with fresh ginger, sesame oil, garlic and other flavorings.  If you cannot find soba noodles in your local market, you can substitute with angel hair pasta or even instant ramen noodles.  Feel free to add chopped vegetables like bell pepper, carrots and snow peas to the noodles along with cubed tofu or shredded chicken.
