I love when i come across a recipe that uses ingredients I need to use up! In this case i had Swiss chard and baby bok Choy to use up. This was really yummy! Even though I totally forgot the scallions!

Sesame Noodles with Wilted Garden Greens:
adapted from bevcooks

* 1 box whole wheat pasta
* 1/4 cup soy sauce
* 2 Tbs. sugar
* 4 cloves garlic, minced
* 2 tsp rice vinegar
* 2 Tbs. toasted sesame oil
* 1 Tbs. sambal oelek
* 2 Tbs. oil
* 2 scallions, finely sliced
* 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
* 6 cups chopped winter greens (I used bok choy and swiss chard)

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook the pasta until al dente. Drain and throw back into the pot.

In the medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar, garlic, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sambal oelek and oil and whisk!

In the meantime, heat your olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high. Add the greens and sauté until slightly wilted, maybe 2 minutes. Season with a small pinch of salt.

Toss noodles with the dressing and wilted greens. Sprinkle with scallions.
