Sonya's Sesame Cold Noodle

What to do with those left over spaghetti noodles?  Make some Cold Noodle.  George, my hubby, makes his own good cold noodle.  His are good too.  But here is my creation.  Often with these homemade recipes, it's a splash and a dash here and there and this is no exception.

Just toss something like this onto your refrigerated cold left over noodles:

White wine vinegar
Olive oil
Dash of Sherry
Sesame Seed Oil
Hot Chili Oil
Red Pepper Flakes
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Parmesan Cheese
Fresh Romano Cheese

Experiment with your own!  

Spanish Rice

1 lb lean ground beef
1 large onion
1 medium green pepper
1 can (15 oz) tomato suce
1 can (14 1/2 oz) diced tomatoes
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 2/3 cup cooked brown rice

(I added Soy, Sugar, and a little MSG to make the flavors pop).

In a large skillet, cook beef, onion and pepper over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until beef is no longer pink and onion is tender, breaking up beef into crumbles, drain.

Stir into tomato sauce, tomatoes, and seasonings, bring to a boil.  Add rice, heat through , stirring occasionally.
