Let’s talk NOODS lol.  If there is one thing everyone loves, it’s noodles. I’m all about linguini, angel hair, pad thai, orzo, and soba noodles! Typically all pasta dishes are served hot, but there is something amazing about a cold pasta salad that I just crave. 

 

My usual cold pasta go to is Pesto Pasta Salad, but I wanted to explore another concept… and the Cold Sesame Noodle Salad was born!

 

Pasta get’s a bad reputation for being a refined carbohydrate, lacking nutrients and is typically used in heavier dishes. However, you can easily swap out traditional noodles for whole wheat, lentil, chickpeas and the list goes on. Pasta is also the perfect medium to pack on the veggies. With this particular dish you can easily throw on broccoli and more.
