Sesame noodles with red pepper and edamame

Sesame noodles with red pepper and edamame


A delicious and nutritious main meal


  • 12 ounces spaghetti or linguine (I used whole grain)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 cup shelled edamame (I used frozen-no need to defrost)

for the sauce

  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil


In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce.  Set aside.

Prepare the pasta according to package instructions.  In a large skillet, heat the oil.  Add the red pepper strips and saute until they are soft to your desired doneness (I like mine crisp tender), about 8 minutes.  Add the edamame and cook until they are heated through, 3 minutes or so.  Stir in the pasta; remove from heat.  Pour the sauce over the whole thing and toss to coat.  Serve immediately.
