It's a Keeper Thursday: Sesame Noodles

My daughter C brought home a GREAT kids' recipe book from the library a week or so ago. This book, The Cookbook for Kids: Great Recipes for Kids who Love to Cook, has some AWESOME recipes that we've tried! The kids' LOVED Sesame Noodles and has asked to make it again already!

Sesame Noodles

Ingredients:
1 t salt
1/2 package (8oz) thin spaghetti
3 T soy sauce
2 T sesame oil
2 T safflower or canola oil
1 1/2 T sugar
1 1/2 T rice vinegar
3 thinly sliced or shredded green onion
2 t toasted sesame seeds

1. Cook the spaghetti by following the directions on the package then drain.
2. In a small saucepan, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, safflower or canola oil, 2 T hot water, sugar, and vinegar. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring, until the water is dissolved.
3. Toss spaghetti with the sauce mixture in a large bowl. Sprinkle with green onion and sesame seeds. Can be served warm, room temperature or chilled.

We added a bag of frozen broccoli crowns, steamed in the microwave, or you can add strips of carrot, snow peas, cooked asparagus, and water chestnuts. Some diced cooked pork or chicken would make this into a full meal. Makes 4-6 servings. Yum!
