Easy Sesame Noodles

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

Every time I make these Easy Sesame Noodles I find myself wondering how something so quick and easy can be so delicious.


These noodles take less than 15 minutes to make. That’s right. Fifteen minutes! And everyone in my family loves them. Even the picky eaters love these noodles.  I’m talking about the ones who usually turn their noses up at anything other than butter on Parmesan cheese on their pasta.  And did I mention it only takes 15 minutes to get this meal on the table? You can use Japanese noodles if your supermarket carries them, angel hair, or any other type of long, thin pasta.  I often use red pepper flakes in place of the hot chili oil.  And you easily adapt this recipe to include protein or vegetables. Serve these Easy Sesame Noodles with a green salad and you’ve got a complete meal in practically no time.

  12. Made this last night.
    I liked it. My adult daughter didn’t.
    I used linguine rather than spaghetti. The quantity of the sauce it made was way more than was needed, so if I make it again I will halve the amounts.

  13. Made this tonight, so yummy and easy!

  14. WOW!! these were amazing!! I reblogged them on my page because I found them when I searched “Easy Sesame Noodles”

    I recently went vegan so I have been looking for some good veggie/vegan recipes.

    Thanks so much for this, they were delish!!

  15. I liked this, but would not use the chili sauce next time! Too spicy for me! I also added broccoli! Yum!

  16. OMG, YUM! Will try this! Your recipes look delicious! My mouth is watering looking at the spagetti carbonara as we speak! I also have a cooking/homemaking blog. Would love if you visited my blog also. It’s:
    Keep up the great work!

  17. I made this tonight. It was delicious. I used rice bran oil instead of olive and threw in some sesame seeds as well.

  18. Tasty will make again for sure. I stir fried some snow peas and a handful of shredded carrots. I prefer cooked garlic so add after veggies cook. Next time I will use half amount of olive oil. Thanks,
