Our good friends from Bona Sera Supper Club cooked up an amazing version of Spicy Sesame Peanut Noodles.  They reported selling completely out of everything!  The pasta was a huge hit and will be on the menu again…. Love, love, love the beautiful colors of the veggies. Black sesame seeds may be my new favorite garnish!
