Sesame Noodles

This is a simple, yummy pasta that is perfect for chinese dishes or just as a side dish.  It is very mild and our kids even liked it.

1 16 ounce package pasta noodles ( I used spaghetti)
6 garlic cloves, minced
6 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons rice vinegar
6 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
6 green onions, slice (opt.)
1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted (opt.)
* Cook pasta according to the package directions. When pasta has finished cooking, drain and put into a large serving dish.

* While pasta is cooking, in medium saucepan over medium-high heat and add olive oil, garlic, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and pour sauce over pasta and toss to coat. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.  To toast sesame seeds, place in glass baking dish in 400 degree oven for several minutes.  Watch very carefully, they will burn quickly.
