Use your noodle!

Noodles are a number one favorite in our house.  Pasta or Chinese, doesn't matter, I know it will be a hit if it involves noodles.  I got this recipe a while ago from my friend Andrea.  It was so flavorful, so simple and SO QUICK!  I added a few ingredients and a step or two.  You really could do whatever you want with it.  Add the vegetables, or meat, your family likes best.  I made a double batch last night and there was nothing left to show for it this morning.  I'll let that last statement speak for itself.

Japanese Noodles with Tomatoes (& lots of other vegetables now) 
**Adapted from "Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health cookbook"
8 oz soba noodles
2 Tbs sesame oil (toated)
2 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
2 Cups diced tomatoes (I used whole grape tomatoes)
1 Lg. Red Pepper (Roasted in oven until slightly blackened & sliced)
1-2 Cups of broccoli florets
1/4 Cup slices scallions/green onions
1 Cup Edamame

1.)  Cook Noodles according to package directions.
2.)  Roast red pepper @ 500 degrees (about 5 minutes) until slightly blackened, then slice
3.)  Saute broccoli & edamame for about 3 minutes
4.)  Add in sliced green onions & saute one more minute
5.)  Add vegetables to drained noodles & mix in sesame oil, olive oil & soy sauce.

*** The noodles will be cold from the rinse following boiling.  If you'd prefer a hot dish, throw everything back into a large skillet for a couple of minutes.
