Cold Sesame Pasta Salad

For a tasty Asian noodle dish, try making the Cold Sesame Pasta Salad. With ingredients like chunky peanut butter and Sriracha hot chile sauce, there's a great fusion of flavors in this meal.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups small shell pasta
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha hot chile sauce (or Chinese chile sauce)
  • 1/2 cup peanuts, optional
  • chopped scallions
  • chopped cucumber
  • chopped basil
  • black sesame seeds
  • shredded spinach or romaine lettuce
  • sesame oil

Instructions

  1. Start the water boiling for the shells.
     
  2. Add the shells and cook al dente.
     
  3. Meanwhile measure the chicken broth, soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, peanut butter and grated ginger root into a sauce pan.
     
  4. Add peanuts if you are using them. Heat to a simmer and stir with a whisk. Simmer about 5 minutes to thicken slightly. Add sesame oil and let cool.
     
  5. Drain the shells into a colander and refill the pot with cold water and a few ice cubes.
     
  6. Stir the shells into the ice water to cool them.
     
  7. Drain in the colander again and toss lightly so the excess water runs off.
     
  8. Combine the sauce with the cold pasta. Add the sesame oil and the hot sauce. Taste and adjust the spiciness to your preference.
     
  9. Serve on a large platter with shredded lettuce or spinach on each end.
     
  10. Over the top, sprinkle lots of black sesame seeds, scallions, cucumber and a little basil.
     
  11. Last, drizzle more sesame oil over the top.
