Recipe Thursday-Sesame Noodles

Posted on December 12th, 2013 | Posted in Main Course, Recipes

Sesame Noodles is another heart healthy recipe that I made when my father was recovering from heart bypass surgery. Whole-wheat pasta bolsters fiber and nutrients, the fresh snap peas add the perfect amount of pop and freshness to each bite and the crushed hot red pepper adds some additional flavor!
