I loved these sesame noodles. They were quick and easy to make with great results. The noodles were so flavorful. I let them sit over night in the fridge, that was the hard part. Then enjoyed them for lunch the next day. They had a great flavor. Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. I love that you can use any kind of long noodle and it works perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing a recipe that I will indulge in often. Made for What's on the Menu? Tag Game.

This is DS's favorite way to enjoy Asian noodles. He can't get enough of this and asks me to make it often. I love how simple it is to prepare, but tastes like so much more. Thank you for sharing with favorite in our house.

I made this using chow mein noodles and combined it with the recipe on the box by adding 1/2 c chicken broth to it. The broth made it way too soupy, however. I also subbed powdered ginger for fresh. It was an ok recipe (soupy with the broth). The flavor was ok, but different. My kids didn't want the leftovers.

good recipe -
i made it exactly according to the recipe the first time - but it was a little too salty for me. the next time, i used way less soy sauce and it was great.
i also added juice from half a lemon and about a tablespoon of honey to the sauce.
thanks for posting this.

I made this tonight and we all loved it ( 6 y/o son, hubby and I). I more or less eyeballed the ingredients. I added a little (like 1/2 tsp) garlic chilli paste and hubby added more at the table.

I was looking for a peanut-free recipe to share with my 12 month old for lunch, and this fit the bill. I didn't have sesame seeds or enough ginger for my taste, so I am looking forward to making this again with the correct adjustments. I added some shredded carrot and 2 oranges, peeled and chopped. I would DEFINITELY recommend the orange- the sweetness was the perfect compliment to the other flavors in this dish.

This tastes a lot like the noodles in the salad bar of my local organic and health food store. I didn't know how ridiculously simple it would be to make. It's really flavorful and pretty versatile since you can easily toss some veggies into it as well for a quick meal.

Sorry, I just wasn't a big fan. The sesame oil was a bit overwhelming.

These were fantastic! I made enough for me, no leftovers. I just kinda eye-balled everything. How simple of a dish is this? Sometimes, its nice to have a no-brainer go to for supper. I like the idea others have had about adding some meat. So versatile, and so good. I couldn't find black sesame seeds, so I used regular, but I toasted mine. That gives it another layer of flavor. I also used red pepper flakes instead of cayenne, just a preference thing, and it does need that little kick of heat in it. Next time, I'm going to add a little garlic in, too. Thanks sassafrassnanc, for adding a great recipe to my collection.
