Cold Sesame Noodles is a spicy appetizer that is sometimes called Szechuan Noodles after the traditionally fiery cuisine of Szechuan Province in Mainland China.

A popular menu item at Chinese restaurants, Cold Sesame Noodles is a dish that is quick to the table at home. This easy recipe calls for spaghetti or linguini, however you can also use Asian-style Udon noodles or even whole-wheat pasta.

What sets this delicious recipe apart is our use of soynut butter to replace traditional peanut butter, which adds healthful antioxidants and isoflavones.
