Awesome Sesame Noodles


Today was a school picnic for F, the 4yo. It's a potluck event and so I decided to make my very favorite  Sesame Noodle dish which was given to me nearly 20 years ago by a friend. It's slightly spicy and sooooo good!
Sadly I forgot to take a picture of it but I did send some in the 7yo's lunch so can show the bit she took with her. 
L's lunch- PB sandwich, apples, and yummy sesame noodles
For those of you wondering how to make this, I am posting the recipe here. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments! Enjoy!!!

Sesame Noodles 
Quantity                                      Ingredients     
1/4 c.                                           soy sauce
3 T.                                             Sesame Oil
2 T.                                             Red Wine Vinegar
1 1/2 T.                                       Sugar

1 T.                                             Chili Sauce w/Garlic (Sambal Oelek)
12oz package                              Chinese water-style noodles or spaghetti 
4                                                  green onions sliced
2                                                  bell peppers julienne
2 T.                                              Cilantro, chopped (I use an entire bunch but just the leaves)
2-4t                                              sesame seeds (I use toasted and normal)

Blend marinade ingredients until well combined (can be done a day ahead, cover and chill). Bring to room temperature. Cook noodles al dente, cool and toss with marinade and remaining ingredients. Serve chilled. This works as an entree and feeds 4 or as a side and feeds 8-10.
