Happy Wednesday to you! I’m actually writing this Tuesday night to get a jump on Wednesday. I had HOPED to show you my latest painting project today; however, it took longer than expected due to a stomach bug I had on Monday and just, well…you know. Life. But I am really happy with how it turned out, so I hope to take some pretty pictures of it tomorrow if the light cooperates and then I’ll show you what I’m talking about.
So, on to my recipe for the week. Do you ever cook way more spaghetti that you need? I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly either over-estimating or under-estimating the amount of noodles I need. I was sick of throwing out the cold, leftover pasta so I found a way to use it! This recipe does require some special ingredients (one of Home Made Modern’s no-nos); BUT, since this is a chronic problem for me, I figured I’ll put them to good use over time. These noodles make an especially tasty lunch, by the way, which incidentally is something Home Made Modern thinks all moms and working ladies deserve. So I guess it all balances out.
Spicy Sesame Noodles
leftover cooked spaghetti (this time I had about 6-8 oz worth)
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. rice vinegar
3 T. pure sesame oil
1/2 tsp. hot chili oil
4 T. canola oil
2 whole green onions, sliced
Whisk all ingredients (except noodles and green onions) together in a bowl. Taste and adjust ingredients as needed. Pour sauce over noodles and toss to coat. Sprinkle with green onions. Can be served warm or cold.
