Cold Sesame Noodles With Carrot & Cucumber



I love sesame noodles , this surely is a crowd-pleaser and an easy starter or side—or a main course on a hot day.Turn regular spaghetti into a flavor-packed dish with this peanut butter sauce. You'll get protein, healthy fats, and minimal sodium & these are way way better than take outs.
