So the final opinion is that the kids liked it but hubby was so-so. Myself? I'm ok with it. Peanut butter was very strong in this recipe. The recipe is simple enough but I think it needed something extra. I'm sure the sesame seeds would of been good but the sauce itself not that great. I think I'll try to tweak this recipe. Make it tastier. Here's the recipe.
Peanut & Sesame Noodle
For peanut sauce
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup warm water
1 tablespoon chopped peeled fresh ginger
