  1. In boiling salted water, cook noodles until tender, five to ten minutes. Rinse in cold water until cool. Drain and toss with 1 teaspoon sesame oil and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine soy sauce and sugar. Simmer until syrupy, about ten minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the tahini, 1/4 cup sesame oil, vinegar and water and soy/sugar mixture until smooth. Season to taste with cayenne.
  4. To serve, toss noodles with dressing, green onions and sesame seeds, reserving some seeds for garnish.
