Spicy Sesame Noodles

This recipe is also from the Healthy Cooking for Two or Just You that I mentioned in my last post. I really recommend it if you are cooking smaller portions. The funny thing about the recipe I am sharing today is that I planned on making it just for me. Then the hubby started lurking in the kitchen and asking questions about what I was making. So after he scanned the ingredients he decided to give it a try. So I doubled the recipe and we actually ate together...and he LIKED it. I was pretty excited.

So here is the recipe that was husband approved:

Spicy Sesame Noodles
Most of this is probably in your pantry already. Get a pot of water boiling and start gathering ingredients.

You will need pasta, tahini, ginger, red pepper, rice vinegar, oil, garlic, soy sauce, mushrooms, onion and celery...which I didn't have but it was fine without it.

ginger grated
Chop up your veggies and grate the ginger. You also need to chop your garlic but I missed getting a picture of that.

sauce combined
Combine the water, soy sauce, tahini, vinegar and red pepper flakes if you want them. Oh look there is the garlic hiding behind the measuring cup!

veggies in for 3 minutes
Get your noodles into the boiling water and get your veggies in the pan for about 3 minutes.

garlic in for one minute
Add in your garlic and stir for about a minute.

boil the sauce until it is smoooooth while stirring
Pour the sauce mixture in and stir that around until it is bubbling and smooth.

pasta in to get saucy
Drop in the pasta, give it a stir, and you are done!

Tasty, simple, spicy...the trifecta! My husband ate two servings, I would say that was successful.

I cannot believe Christmas is next weekend!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season, stay safe and eat well.
