Super Easy Sesame Noodles

IMG_8334

I’ve been trying over the last few weeks to start getting in meal planning mode so that weeknight dinners can come together really quickly. I pretty much always have a protein and a veggie planned, but almost always overlook a starch. I’ve never been too into carby things like pasta and potatoes, but served a certain way (i.e. like this or this), it takes everything inside of me not to eat the entire platter. This bowl of sesame noodles has now joined that club.

The recipe is ideal for a weeknight meal because it literally comes together in minutes, and if you make it in advance, it only gets better. It can be eaten hot, room temperature, or cold…all of which are delicious. I wouldn’t say it’s super duper healthy, but paired with some roasted veggies and a lean protein, it all balances out.
