If you think you’ve tasted great sesame noodles, think again. Toasted sesame paste gives these an incredibly deep, nutty flavor, while homemade hot pepper oil adds gentle spicy heat. A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes or a few dashes of hot sauce can be used instead, if you like.

This recipe is FANTASTIC. It has become my 'go to' and every time I make it, it is so delicious. I found the sesame paste at our local Chinese grocer and ended up purchasing a number of jars because I love these noodles so much. My family is not a fan of Udon noodles - it is a textural issue that I don't share with them - so I use Angel's Hair pasta with great results. I will often throw in matchstick carrots and blanched snow peas.....such a great recipe!
Sesame noodles have been a favorite of mine and my family for years. This is the BEST recipe I have found. I did have trouble locating all of the ingredients (even going to an Asian specialty market) and used dried noodles and regular soy sauce. Great results!!
