Sesame Peanut Noodles Recipe

Sesame Peanut Noodles

I always make a large vat of these since they're lovely to keep to pick at in the fridge, too. Plus, although they're easy to make, you do need quite a few ingredients - and this holds true whether you're making a small or big batch, so you may as well go all out.

  • 11/4 lbs cooked egg noodles
