Red Pepper & Sesame Whole Grain Linguini Pasta

Know What You Eat: Linguine is a flat form of pasta – it looks similar to spaghetti, but is a little wider. The name linguine means “little tongues” in Italian. It takes just a little creativity to make different varieties of pastas for busy moms like us..I bet everyone can come up with their own simple yet delicious and healthy versions of pastas and noodles when it comes for after school snacks or even lunch/brunch  ideas for weekends. For every 1/2 a cup of whole grain pasta automatically adds 6 grams fiber to your meal, well all not that much but  those of you who are interested in maintaining a healthy digestive system, along with excellent bowel movements should go for whole grain variety as its also low in sugar and packed with good sources of complex carbohydrates along with some key vitamins and minerals. Pairing this with Vit C rich red bell pepper and niacin packed sesame seeds. Hungry now??? Here's how I made..

Red Pepper Sesame Pasta

    1  (4oz packet) Wholegrain Linguine pasta
    1+1 Tbsp Sesame/Olive oil
    2 Tbsp rice vinegar
    1 tsp Red pepper flakes

    1 Tbsp Soy sauce
    1 tsp Sugar
    4 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
    1 Redpepper,sliced
    1 Red Onion,sliced

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Blend 1 part sesame/olive oil, vinegar, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, soy sauce and sugar. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Pour over pasta.
