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.

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

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…

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!

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!
