Easy Sesame Noodles

IMG_1139Last year was the first time I really got into spring pastas. I loved the idea of tossing crisp, fresh produce with a mellow dose of pasta and a light sauce.

There’s just an easiness to them that is very appealing, and that’s certainly true of this recipe—although, I suppose this is technically a noodle recipe not a pasta, but it’s in the area, right? Anyway, bok choy was looking particularly delicious to me when I was grocery shopping last week, so my first spring noodle dish this year has some Asian flair.

I threw a small handful of cashews in mine, but I’m leaving it up to you to choose whatever protein you’d like—chicken, tofu, or I think this dish would be fantastic with shrimp.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!
