I got my inspiration from this recipe, and modified it to suit my own tastes. I like my food flavorful and spicy. I found that the soy sauce was extremely dominating, lending it an Asian taste. I feel that next time I make it, I will either leave out the soy sauce or cut it down. I suggest you make it without the soy sauce, and then decide if you would like to add it.
3 tablespoons soy sauce 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil 1 1/2 tablespoons sesame paste* 1 1/2 tablespoons vinegar 2 tsp garlic 1 tbsp ground ginger 1 tbsp dried red pepper flakes Smoked paprika and sesame seeds to sprinkle on top of each serving
Mix the first 7 ingredients together and pour over warm pasta, then sprinkle each serving with sesame seeds and smoked paprika for added flavor and color
