Asian Pasta Salad...

If you have been to a party/dinner with me in the summertime you have probably had this dish. We make it all of the time and LOVE it!! It goes great with Teryaki or Ginger Chicken on the grill. The ingredients are probably not something you have on hand, but once you buy them you will be able to make this dish quite a few times.

1 16 oz pckg spagetti noodles cooked al dente
1 cup diced peppers (red, orange, yellow or a mix of all)
1 bunch green onions diced
8 oz frozen peas
1/2 a bag of matchstick carrots (or you could cut your own but I don't know how many)
handful of black seasame seeds for garnish on the top (it doesn't add anything to the taste of the salad so if you don't have it don't worry about it)

1 tsp. garlic
1 tsp fresh ginger root or you can use the dry kind (fresh is better)
1/8 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinager
1 tsp hot chili oil
1/8 cup seasame oil
1/4 cup olive oil or vegtable oil

Mix it all together and enjoy! The longer you let it marinade the better. I like to make it the day before we are eating it, or at least the morning of the meal.
