I’ve been cooking but actually haven’t tried soba noodles and sesame on it, but I think the very clear presentation and beautiful finished dish is worth a try! And the vegetables, they are a MUST do and eat! Gorgeous. Thank you.

Chili Dude on 1.15.2011

Thanks for the great recipe. I made the Sesame Noodles today for lunch. Everyone loved it.

Renee on 1.9.2011

I made this this past week and liked it a lot. I only made half of the sauce and it was perfect. I did add more veggies…

Hunter Gatherer on 1.9.2011

I agree with Peggy in Kansas that the dressing was overpowered by the soy sauce ( I used tamari ). I would take her suggestion and half the amount of soy sauce or tamari and add some sugar as well as some lime juice. Also, 1 pound of pasta was entirely too much pasta for the amount of vegetables called for. The photo depicts a ratio of approximately 50/50 pasta to veggies. To achieve this, only cook a half pound of pasta and then add the dressing to taste.
Boy, were those edamame a delicious addition!

Kelly on 1.9.2011

OMG This was delicious! If you are using Soba noodles, make sure you rinse them really well in cold water as soon as they are cooked.
Thanks for the recipe- I have a feeling I will be using it a lot!

Tonia on 1.9.2011

Oh man! what a simple and delish meal…I’ve been craving something asian lately. Thanks for the inspiration :)

Peggy In Kansas on 1.7.2011

I love these kinds of dishes. I made it directed but found that the taste of soy sauce overshadowed everything, and made it some what difficult to enjoy. So I added some brown sugar. Much better!

When I make this recipe again, I will include brown suger in the dressing, I’ll cut back on the soy sauce (probably to a 1/4 cup) and slightly increase the sesame oil so that taste will be more pronounced.

Sue on 1.7.2011

Delicious, healthy and beautiful! Made this for dinner last night, and threw in a handful of shredded rotisserie chicken. Will be adding to our regular dinner rotation. I think it would be interesting to put a thai spin to the dressing by adding peanut butter and sweet chili sauce. Might lose a little in the healthy category, but a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter in a pound of pasta plus veggies… not too many more calories? Is it? One can only hope. Lol.

Athena on 1.7.2011

Perfect!!! I’m going to use this with kelp or Japanese Shirataki noodles since I don’t eat grain noodles. Thanks!

StephanieK on 1.5.2011

Great recipe. Glad you’re using the buckwheat noodles and edamame. So healthy and so tasty…thoese noodles are wayyy better than the whole wheat pasta.

Maria on 1.5.2011

Andrea-so glad you liked this recipe!

Rachel (S[d]OC) on 1.4.2011

This actually reminds me a bit of Ree’s “favorite salad” with a bit more of an Asian twist. It was always a favorite lunch of mine. I must add this version into the rotation.

I love this! A lot of times I want something Asian but I have no clue how to make it or the recipes have ingredients that you can’t find at your local grocery store.

What a great recipe, not only is it colorful and healthy, but it sounds delicious too!

MOV on 1.3.2011

“Healthful eating” has been at the top of my Resolution List for oh, about 10 years now. I need to make a more, ahem, *realistic* list of Resolutions, more like Revolutions, that would include do-able tasks like “eat more chocolate”. Ah, yes, then I would indeed feel successful (or maybe just “full”).
