Cool off today with Last Minute Sesame Noodles and a Free 7-Eleven Slurpee!

There are many nights, as I’m sure many of you agree, that I just want to throw something quick and healthy on the table. Many many nights. Especially during the summer after a day of working or playing in the heat.

I created this colorful noodle bowl on one of those nights using up what was in my produce drawer, freezer and pantry.

The best part of a cold noodle salad like this one is the leftovers. You can enjoy them even more for lunch or dinner the next day.

I love my noodles heavy on the veggies and meatless. Edamame is the protein star in this recipe but you could most definitely include other favorites such as leftover grilled shrimp or chicken. Make your noodles your own by using whatever you have on hand, that’s the true beauty of a recipe like this.

Last Minute Sesame Noodles with Edamame

Recipe from Aggie’s Kitchen

1 lb spaghetti (I used quinoa pasta, but whole wheat or soba noodles would be great as well)
1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tb sesame oil
2 tb canola oil
2 tb rice wine vinager
1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 bunch of scallions, sliced, divided
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
1 red peppers, sliced thin
1/4 piece of red cabbage head, sliced thin
1-2 carrots, shredded with vegetable peeler
1 1/2 cup shelled edamame, cooked
1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds

Cook pasta according to directions. Drain well in a colander and let cool.

To make dressing, whisk soy sauce, sesame oil, canola oil, vinegar, crushed red pepper, scallions, and cilantro in a large bowl. Add noodles and vegetables, toss to coat. Top with sesame seeds.
