Sesame Udon Noodles with Peppers and Garlic

I always pick up different sizes and shapes of Asian noodles when I'm in a market that sells them. They are easy to toss with different sauces/oils/veggies for a quick side dish, so I love keeping noodles in the pantry.

A few weeks ago I picked up a package of Udon noodles -

Jon was making grilled beef kabobs (using
this recipe) and grilled veggies, so I made a quick sesame udon dish.


  • 1/2 package of Udon noodles
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • Optional: sliced peppers


  • Cook noodles in boiling water; these noodles only took about 8 minutes to cook.
  • In the meantime, heat olive oil in a large saute pan or wok
  • Add garlic; if using, add peppers. Cook 3-4 minutes
  • Add sesame oil and soy sauce and stir until heated
  • Add noodles and toss to coat
