Asian Marinara Sauce

Noodles of any kind are always a big hit at my house. There is something about them that the whole family loves. So warm, so comforting. But sometimes I grow tired of the same old same old. That’s why when I saw a recipe for Japanese Noodles in my Moosewood cookbook I was keen to give them a go. But of course in the hustle that is my week night I needed to make a couple of changes to the recipe for time sake. The finished product was something a little off the beaten path, but close enough to home that the kid gave it a thumbs up!

Ingredients

3 single serve packages of Udon Noodles (you can find these in most grocery stores near the rice noodles)
2 TBSP sesame oil
2 TBSP soy sauce
1 TBSP olive oil
2 cups diced salt free canned tomatoes
5 spring onions chopped finely
Salt and pepper to taste

In a small pot add all ingredients minus the udon noodles. Bring to a simmer and let sit on low heat to warm through.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the udon noodles for 3 minutes, or by package instructions. Drain and return to large pot. Add heated sauce and serve immediately.
