Sesame Ginger Udon Noodles


2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbs minced fresh ginger root
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 Tbs rice vinegar
1/4 cup peanut oil
3 Tbs sesame oil
1 1/8 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/2 green bell pepper, julienned
1/2 red bell pepper, julienned
1/2 yellow bell pepper, julienned
4 green onions, minced
2 cup diagonally sliced snap peas
2 Tbs sesame seeds, toasted
1 7 oz package fresh udon noodles


In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, peanut oil, sesame oil and hot pepper sauce. Close the lid, and shake vigorously to blend. Set aside to let the flavors blend.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add udon noodles, and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain, and place in a serving bowl.
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the green, red, and yellow peppers with green onion and peas. Heat in the microwave until warm, but still crisp. Add to the noodles in the bowl, and pour the dressing over all. Toss to coat everything in dressing, then sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over the top.
