It’s National Pasta Day, so I packed Bug’s bento with one of my all-time favorite quick meals. We almost always keep a bag of cooked whole grain noodles in the fridge, so when we need an easy weeknight or lunch box meal, we just pop out some noodles and top them with whatever sauce we feel like.
One of my absolute favorites for myself is a quick Asian-inspired sesame noodles. I splash in some Bragg’s amino acids (soy sauce works, too), garlic powder, sesame oil and sesame seeds. I sometimes top it off with red pepper flakes, too (not in Bug’s version).
It’s stupid simple and incredibly delicious. It’s kind of like having soba noodles when you don’t have the buckwheat to make them.
You can definitely get a little fancier and add in more spices, maybe some green onions. But part of the beauty of this dish is it’s simplicity.
