Szechuan Dan Dan Noodles

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

I love Asian noodle dishes, especially the spicy ones! This one's just hot enough; add more heat if you like. I also like the flavor of both the sesame oil and sesame seeds in this dish, and I toast the seeds until they're nearly brown. This makes a nice and quick side dish for dinner, or a tasty light lunch.

I gave this a 5 * while DH gave it a 3*. I loved all the flavors including the vinegar. I did decrease the vinegar during step #2 and did a taste test and added the rest of the vinegar for the tartness. I love hot and spicy dishes and this didn't disappoint me. DH was surprised that it was cold and not hot. I think that's what disappointed him the most. I should have warned him a head of time. I did use wide rice noodles because that is what I had in the cupboard, so I was on a hunt to use them up when I found this recipe. Thanks for posting. :)
