Ingredients
Topping:
  • 2 tablespoons raw sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup sliced green onions
Sauce:
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons light olive oil (not extra-virgin)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
Noodles:
  • 1 teaspoon salt for cooking the pasta
  • 1 box (16 oz) whole-wheat thin spaghetti
Instructions
  1. In a big pot, start boiling water for the pasta.
  2. Toast the sesame seeds in a skillet over medium heat, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Set aside.
  3. Thinly slice the green onions.
  4. Whisk together the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, just until warm.
  5. Cook the pasta in salted water, one minute less than package directions (about 5 minutes for thin spaghetti). Drain in a colander. Return the cooked pasta to the hot, empty saucepan.
  6. Pour the warm sauce over the noodles and mix well with a large spoon.
  7. Transfer the noodles to individual bowls, and sprinkle with the toppings. Serve immediately.
