This "hot" Asian restaurant dish tastes incredible 'cause it's served chilled! Our delicious recipe for cold sesame noodles bathed in a peanutty sauce is extra special, so why pay for take-out when we can do it ourselves this easily?
What You'll Need
- 1 pound linguine or spaghetti
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 6 scallions (green onions), thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
- 1/2 of a red pepper, cut into strips
What to Do
- Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Add pasta and toss to coat evenly.
- Cover and chill at least 1 hour before serving.
- Sure, you can serve this warm, but to bring out the sesame and peanut flavors, we recommend serving it cold, which is the traditional way. We also like to add cooked shrimp or chicken; and to give it a restaurant finished look, garnish with sesame seeds and additional sliced scallions.
