I used to shy away from sundried tomatoes. My aversion to them began when I ordered a sundried tomato pizza at an Italian restaurant and got a pizza *covered* in the things, which were so strong and flavorful that they overpowered the entire pizza.
Since then I’ve come to love them, as long as they are in small quantities and used as a highlighted flavor rather than the main one. These stuffed mushrooms are the perfect place for them.
After buying sesame noodles from the grocery store on a weekly basis, I thought it was about time to make them at home. It seemed simple, and it absolutely is – cook the noodles, heat up the sauce, and combine. I used soba noodles instead of linguine due to soba’s magical nutritional content, and added carrots for crunch.
