Original recipe from The Pioneer Woman Cooks: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2010/08/simple-sesame-noodles/
There are so many inherently delicious flavors within the most simple ingredients one doesn't always have to go through culinary somersaults grinding, sauteing, mixing, beating, searing and combining a zillion ingredients to make something utterly delicious!
Asian noodles fit that bill to a T. Here's a very simple recipe for delicious sesame noodles. You can eat them by themselves, pair them with stir-fried pork, load 'em with red bell pepper, fresh cilantro, or cooked, chopped shrimp. My peeps and I like them just as the recipe is written--sometimes with some fresh broccoli tossed in at the very end. Give it a try and tweak to your heart's content!
Whisk all ingredients (except noodles and green onions) together in a bowl.
Taste and adjust ingredients as needed.
Pour sauce over warm noodles and toss to coat.
Sprinkle with green onions & sesame seeds (if using) and toss.
Serve in a bowl with chopsticks.
For a Chinese taste, try adding some fresh chopped cilantro, crushed red pepper, and some shredded cooked chicken.
For a Thai flair, add creamy peanut butter to the above.
