500 g (1 lb) spaghetti (#3) or egg noodles (Note: The egg noodles usually come in 400 g packages, so just use the same quantities of dressing – it won’t be a problem)
3 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons vinegar or rice wine vinegar
3 tablespoons sugar
a few drops of sesame oil
1 teaspoon mirin (optional)
Optional vegetables (use all or any if desired)
3 green onion chopped
1 small red pepper sliced and halved
½ small red onions thinly sliced
½ cup cooked corn kernels
1 medium carrot julienned or very thinly sliced
1 stick celery thinly sliced
How to do it
1. Cook the pasta as per the instructions on the package (do not overcook). Drain and rinse with cold water until the noodles reach room temperature.
2. While the pasta is cooking, mix all the dressing ingredients till combined.
3. Toss the dressing through the pasta and add the vegetables if desired.
Serves about 6.
