One Pot Sesame Noodles

As promised, I will continue developing easy dinner recipes.

Some days there is nothing more challenging than figuring out what to make for dinner; particularly when the following factors are present:

1. Exhaustion after a long day at work

2. Minimal brain function due to factor one

3. A spouse who wants “I don’t know” to eat

After much success with my first one pot pasta dinner, I wanted to continue with this. I decided on Asian style and came up with this delicious super easy sesame noodle dish. If you don’t have sugar peas, feel free to omit them. Feel free to add other vegetables. Also, use any type of pasta or noodle you have in your pantry 🙂


Here is my recipe:

Serves 4



1 1/2 cups sugar peas

1 cup carrots, chopped

8 oz spaghetti

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped

1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped

1 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil

1 tablespoon soy sauce

3 cups water



2 tablespoons green onion, chopped

2 tablespoons cilantro

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

lime wedges





1. Add ingredients in pot. Cook on medium heat for 10-12 minutes until pasta is al dente and liquid has thickened into a sauce.
