taiwanese cold sesame noodles

Yum

In staying true to my new found kick of cold noodles dishes, I know I know... kinda picked the wrong time of year, but here is another one!  After making singapore hawker noodles with coconut, I couldn't resist.  The sesame sauce for this is to die for, like lick the spoon good!

Feel free to throw in extra veggies based on what you have available, like bell peppers or zucchini, especially when summer is here and your gardens are full.  Grilled chicken would be delicious, speaking of summer, thinly sliced on top of this pasta and you can use the sauce as a marinade, just double it.

Servings 4-6
Total Time 25 minutes

  • 8 ounces Chinese egg noodles or fettuccine
  • 2 cups grated carrot
