tricolorpasta 200x300 Colorful Sesame Noodles

The holidays are on the way, and I thought I’d share one of my go to dishes that I like to make. It is colorful, festive, and no one has to know it is healthy for you. This is a lovely dish to take to a buffet, it is tasty at room temperature and can easily be doubled or tripled.

Sesame Noodles (serves 6)
Spaghetti – 1 pound – cook according to package directions (try it with a healthier pasta such as Ancient Harvest Quinoa Pasta, Spaghetti Style, Supergrain, 8-Ounce Box Colorful Sesame Noodles, a highly nutritious pasta that is gluten free and packed with protein).  You could also use a tri-color pasta, RiceSelect Orzo Tri-Color Pasta (low fat, very good source of protein, 100% all-natural semolina with real spinach and tomato flavoring) Colorful Sesame Noodles
Cherry tomatoes – 1 pint (cut in half)
Broccoli – 1 pound (lightly steamed), chopped into small bite size pieces
1 green and 1 red pepper – diced into small pieces
Scallion – 1 bunch, finely chopped
Sesame seeds – 1 Tbl
Toss all the ingredients together.

Whisk together: ½ cup soy sauce (reduced sodium), ¼ cup rice wine vinegar, and ¼ c sesame oil toasted – mix throughly with the pasta and veggies.
