I wanted to make a Noodle side dish to pair with the Asian chicken I was making for dinner. I kept sautéed some shiitake and mushrooms before tossing them with a soy sesame sauce and whole wheat pasta. They were simple, healthy, and delicious. They went well with the chicken and veggie I served them with. I ate the leftovers today and they were even more flavorful.
Prepare the spaghetti noodles per instructions.
While the pasta is cooking, Whisk together the soy sauce, sugar, garlic, vinegar, sesame oil, chili sauce, 1 tablespoon + 1 1/2 teaspoons of vegetable oil and water in a bowl. Taste and re-season if desired. Set aside.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the last 1 1/2 teaspoons of vegetable oil then add the shiitake mushrooms and chopped kale. Cook, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes. Add the soy sauce mixture and the cooked and drained pasta. Mix the noodles with the sauce until evenly coated. Place in a serving bowl and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Enjoy.
