Even though my husband are gluten-free, I still make this dish for my children who love anything that includes pasta. Since it is an easy dish and I can prepare the sauce and toppings ahead, it usually isn’t a problem to cook it while finishing my other dinner entrees. If you want to enjoy this recipe gluten-free, there are some great pastas out there that will give you a good result, too.
Asian Sesame Noodles (fast and easy dinner!)
1 pound linguine or angel hair pasta
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
4 peeled cloves of garlic, smashed and finely chopped
Sriracha sauce to taste
4 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
Toasted sesame oil to taste
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
1 green onion, very thinly sliced
Combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, Sriracha, olive oil, and salt in a bowl and whisk to combine. Add the sesame oil to taste.
Cook the pasta until just done, drain, and toss the warm pasta with the prepared sauce. Stir in the green onions and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

If you have some leftover chicken, you can dice it and toss with the finished noodle dish.
A scrambled egg, finely broken up can be added for a change of taste and more protein in the dish.
