Cashew Sesame Noodles

Welcome to another “Minus the Meat” Monday! I posted a recipe for cashew sesame noodles three years ago when I first started this blog (It was my sixth post).   Since that was before I knew how to do printable recipes or take a fairly decent photo, and since this is a scrumptious recipe worth repeating, and it’s meatless, I am sharing it again!

cashew sesame noodles, Cashew Sesame Noodles, I’ve said before that making Asian food intimidated me, but this recipe is an absolute cinch to make!

Some of the ingredients you may not typically have on hand, but are readily available at most groceries.  The recipe calls for a pound of thin spaghetti per recipe of sauce, but we like lots of sauce, so I double the recipe per pound of noodles.

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces angel hair pasta cooked and drained
  • 2 teaspoons of jarred chopped garlic
  • 3 Tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Asian sesame oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted roasted cashews
  • 1/3 c water

Instructions

  • Blend all ingredients in blender very well (except pasta). I serve it at room temperature over angel hair pasta or thin spaghetti, and sometimes add chunks of cooked chicken breast. It is supposed to serve 6 – 8, but for us it maybe serves 4!

When your pasta is drained, you can either mix the sauce in with it all, or pour it on individual servings.
