On a weekly basis, we eat noodles (mostly spaghetti) about two or three times a week. You see, Little G’s favorite food is spaghetti, and if you ask him what he wants for dinner, his answer would probably be Parmesan garlic noodles.
So I have been switching up and make different variations so we won’t be bored of eating the same thing! But honestly, I desperately need a new recipe to add to the mix, badly.
So here is the garlic sesame noodles, inspired by Pioneer Woman. My sesame noodles recipe on Rasa Malaysia is made with a rich and creamy sesame sauce, however this garlic sesame noodle is flavored with soy sauce, oyster sauce, garlic, and sesame oil.
It’s the Asian flavored spaghetti noodle dish that is both appetizing and delicious.
This recipe is so easy, fuss-free, and you don’t even need to fire up a skillet to cook. All you have to do is cook the noodles, make the sauce, and then toss them together.
Easy peasy and no major cleaning and wiping of the stove top and kitchen counter.
The taste is savory and aromatic, from the garlic, sesame oil and sesame seeds. It’s great on its own or with chicken, shrimp, with a healthy serving of garlic bok choy.
I served this with the garlic herb sauteed mushrooms, a simple dinner that is both filling and nutritious.
