Picnic Sesame Noodles

Picnic Sesame Noodles

1 pound whole-wheat spaghetti

1/2 C. reduced-sodium soy sauce

2 T. sesame oil

2 T. canola oil (try subbing 1 T for 1 T. Peanut Butter)

2 T. rice-wine vinegar, or lime juice

1 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper

1 bunch scallions, sliced, divided

1/4 C. chopped fresh cilantro, divided (optional)

4 C. snow peas, trimmed and sliced on the bias

1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1/2 C. toasted sesame seeds


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook spaghetti until just tender, 9 to 11 minutes or according to package directions. Drain; rinse under cold water. Meanwhile, whisk soy sauce, sesame oil, canola oil, vinegar (or lime juice), crushed red pepper, 1/4 C. scallions and 2 T. cilantro (if using). Add noodles, snow peas and bell pepper; toss to coat. To serve, mix in sesame seeds and garnish with the remaining scallions and cilantro.
