I had originally planned to make a dish from Cooking Light of an Asian-inspired noodle dish but when I checked out the reviews on their website I decided it wasn't worth making. Since I had the ingredients, though, I tootled around looking for another dish to make. I stumbled upon Cooks' Illustrated's version of Sesame Noodles. This dish was FABULOUS! I added more vegetables since all they called for was one shredded carrot. I had some mushrooms and zucchini so I sauteed my veggies before adding them to the noodles. The sauce is a simple, no-cook sauce that is blitzed in the blender. It contains peanut butter of all things which I think they include because it is cheaper and easier to find than tahini. This dish was so good and it was even tastier the next day cold right out of the refrigerator. I think this would make a great addition to any potluck. In fact, I think I'll make it for the next one I attend in September.
