A yummy way to serve up a bowl of noodles!  Don’t let this recipe’s simplicity deceive you — both kids and adults alike love these noodles whether served on their own or as a side. Compliments of Ree Drummond (aka Pioneer Woman).

serves 4-6 


Simple Sesame Noodles (3)

12 oz. thin spaghetti noodles, cooked and drained

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 TBS sugar

1 tsp. garlic powder

2 TBS rice vinegar

3 TBS pure sesame oil

1/2 tsp. hot chili oil

4 TBS grape seed oil (*see note)



Whisk all ingredients (except noodles) together.  Taste and adjust ingredients as needed.  Pour sauce over warm noodles and toss to coat.

  • I use grape seed oil instead for it’s light flavor.  The original recipe calls for canola but you can use any “light” tasting oil you like.
  • Day to day, (if desired) do as the original recipe suggests and toss the noodles with sliced green onions.   Also, this recipe is a great one to go along with stir fry or to add into a Chinese Chicken Salad.  To please the littlest one, I mix the noodles up first and serve his bowl before adding whatever other “taboo” ingredients he doesn’t like 😉
  • Even though it’s categorized as a pantry meal for it’s quick fix time, I don’t store it that way.  It takes hardly any time to make as it is.

    These noodles are simple and delicious. I used regular spaghetti noodles because I didn’t have the thin type. Also, I cut back on the amount of canola oil, from 4 T to 1 T, and it was plenty for our taste. I will definitely be making these again. Thank you so much.

      I’m glad you mentioned cutting back on the oil. I forgot to mention that when I posted it and have been meaning (and forgetting) to come back to this post to add it. I don’t skimp on the sesame oil but for the grapeseed/ canola oil I do like you did and use much less than what’s called for. 🙂
