Cold Peanut Sesame Noodles

I was looking for something fairly quick to throw together the other night and came across this recipe for Sesame Noodles. It has very few ingredients but is big on flavor. By default it's vegan as long as your Peanut Sauce doesn't have animal products lurking around, read the label to be sure. I only made 1/2 of the recipe so the ingredients reflect that. If you want to feed more like 6 or 8 folks double this. Our local Publix just started carrying the Gardein Mandarin Orange Crispy Chicken and we hadn't tried it yet. I had a package in the freezer and decided it would be a good side, so I fixed it according to the package directions, it was DELICIOUS! I really love the Gardein products.

1/2 package multigrain spaghetti
1/4 cup Padang Peanut Sauce
2 green onions (scallions), sliced
1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

Prepare pasta according to package directions. While it cooks chop all of your veggies.

Now toast your sesame seeds in a small skillet, keep your eye on them they can go from toasting to burning pretty quick.

In a medium sized bowl add peanut sauce, green onions, red bell pepper and lime juice. Mix well.

Toss your drained pasta into the bowl and give it all a good mix.

Add the toasted sesame seeds.

Serve with the chicken or whatever you prefer on the side. Enjoy!
