Sesame Noodles

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/4 cup peanut oil
3 tablespoons sesame oil
1 dash 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 cups diagonally sliced snap peas

2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
1 (7 ounce) package fresh udon noodles

In a container 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 combine.

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 large skillet or wok, warm up a small amount of peanut oil then combine the green, red, and yellow peppers with green onion and peas. Heat until warm, but still crisp. Add to the noodles in and pour the dressing over all. Toss to coat everything in dressing, then sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over the top.

Toasting sesame seeds:
Toast sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat. Shake pan, or stir occasionally until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.
