Sesame Noodles


I usually don't serve pasta as a side to a meal, but I couldn't resist adding it to our Orange Thai Flank Steak dinner since the two paired well together. This recipe comes from PW, which I starred as soon as I read it on my Google reader. Asian cuisine is something both my husband and I enjoy, but it's not an everyday or even weekly cuisine for us. There are many recipes out there that I want to try, but I find most to have multiple ingredients that I've never heard of much less have in my pantry. I'm always skeptical to go and buy something if I think I'll never use it again, but this recipe is simple to throw together and uses most kitchen staples. Overall, it complimented the steak nicely and satisfied my craving for simple Asian inspired food.
