DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until only JUST firm-tender; drain VERY well, and transfer to a large bowl.
  • In a bowl whisk together 5 tablespoons sesame oil, honey, soy sauce, vinegar and cayenne pepper; blend well, and season with salt to taste.
  • Mix half of the dressing into the pasta; toss well to coat.
  • Cover the pasta and chill for 2 hours (or more).
  • In a skillet heat the remaining tablespoon of sesame oil over high heat.
  • Add in beans and onions; saute until JUST beginning to wilt (about 2 minutes).
  • Add in the beans and onions, red bell peppers with the chopped peanuts to the cold pasta.
  • Add a little more dressing to coat, and season with black pepper if desired.
  • Pass the remaining dressing separately.
