I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Sesame Noodles
...in your mind.

This is so good either alone or as an accompaniment. In fact, it’s a perfect match for the Asian Scallops - see recipe.
