In the midst of trying to find a quick easy dinner to put together on those days that errands/apts drag us late and this is just the thing. I try to always have on hand extra pasta and some type of sauce in 911 dinner situations. One night I had pasta but no sauce and so I searched around for something to flavor the noodles…. Sesame seeds, sesame oil, soy suace…BINGO! This is a dish the whole fam loves and it’s put together as fast as you cook thin spaghetti!!!

Sesame Spinach Noodles

Sesame Spinach Noodles

  • 1 box Thin Spaghetti
  • 4 cups spinach, chopped
  • 1 medium zucchini, chopped in bite size pieces
  • 2 tbs sesame oil
  • 3 tbs tamari
  • 4 tbs sesame seeds

In a large pot boil water. Add spaghetti and let cook for a few minutes. Add the spinach and let cook some more. Add the zucchini to the pot when your noodles have only  2 or so minutes left so they are cooked but still retain slight hardness.

Drain noodles and place back in the pot. Add the oil and tamari (you may need to add more tamari for taste). Once noodles are evenly coated add the sesame seeds and mix well. Serve!
