Asian Noodles with Broccoli

We love these Asian Noodles with Chinese food, but they are really good with other foods as well. You can have them hot in the winter and cold in the summer. Very versatile and tasty.  They are lightly dressed so their flavor is not overwhelming.

I like to make Asian food and usually, it’s fried rice as a side dish.  But, you know, rice can get boring.  When I made my Air Fryer Lemon Chicken, I wanted something different. Noodles are a great choice.

Most Asian noodle recipes call for chili oil or sriracha.  My noodles are a little different because I like to put Aleppo pepper in mine instead of chili oil or chili flakes.  I like the slightly smoky flavor of Aleppo pepper, and in reality, I put that spice in a lot of foods.

This is a great dish to put leftover vegetables or little bits of vegetables you have in your vegetable drawer.  I happened to have broccoli, but you could put cabbage, green beans, peas, or whatever vegetable you like.  It should be a vegetable that can be cooked to tender-soft, not completely soft as it has to be tossed around with the pasta.

For pasta, you could use just about anything.  I used linguine because I had it on hand, but it would be just as good with spaghetti or fettuccine, even egg noodles would be fine.  If you have children that like whimsical shapes, bow ties or wagon wheels would be fun.  As long as it can be tossed, it’s fine.

Sesame Oil for Asian Noodles

Please don’t get confused with sesame oil.  The sesame oil you want for this and other Asian dishes is toasted and is in the Asian section of your supermarket.  There are several brands available. More about sesame oil.
