Sesame Noodles with Roasted Veggies

Sesame Noodles with Roasted Veggies

I made these tasty sesame noodles with roasted veggies for a family lunch recently because I cleaned out my refrigerator and in the process came up with this recipe. I had some bok choy that needed to be used up, a few mushrooms and asparagus spears, a handful of red pepper slices, and a little bit of onion. I roasted the veggies with thinly sliced garlic and some sesame oil until they were tender. I tossed the roasted veggies with some cooked spaghetti and a sauce made of fresh ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and sriracha and served it with toasted sesame seeds on top and extra soy sauce, sriracha, and homemade chili oil on the side. We all devoured the whole pot of these sesame noodles with roasted veggies within minutes and loved them.  This was a simple and healthy lunch that helped me clean out my fridge–I love that!

Roast, stirring halfway through, until veggies are just tender, about 12-15 minutes.  Remove from the oven and season with sea salt, to taste.

While the veggies are roasting, cook the pasta in salted water, per package instructions; drain pasta reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking water.

Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, fresh ginger, and sriracha sauce; whisk until well mixed.

Pour the sauce over the drained pasta along with a bit of the cooking water then add the roasted veggies and toss to coat evenly. Pour into a serving bowl and sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top. Serve immediately with soy sauce, sriracha, and homemade chili oil on the side. Enjoy.
