This is my go to recipe for quick noodles. I make these for lunch quite often. It makes a ton, so I usually plan on eating it a few days during the week. Sometimes I add a few shrimp, or chicken  to make it more substantial. The longer these noodles sit, the better they are. I prefer them cold, a day after they have been made and had time to meld the flavors together. You can add more hot sesame oil, or decrease the amount, depending on your tastes. You can also add a handful of sesame seeds for extra texture. And don't skip on the green onions. They are so yummy in this dish!

*note - feedback on the oil content. Some people say this dish is way to sesame oil -y. You can decrease the amount of oil used, just tweak it to your liking.
