      This is a quick and easy (not to mention delicious) dinner when you are in a time crunch and need something FAST.

      1 8oz box Udon Noodles  (a thick wheat pasta)

      1 head of broccoli, cut into florets

       

      Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the noodles.  Set a timer and when there is only 3 minutes left of cooking, add the broccoli right to the pot of boiling water.  This is a quick and efficient way to cook the broccoli (without having to use a separate pot).  Drain the noodles and the broccoli and add to the sauce below.

      While the pasta is boiling, make the garlic sauce:

      4 teaspoons minced garlic
      1 TBS sugar
      2 teaspoons white vinegar
      1 tsp chili garlic paste
      2 teaspoons canola oil
      3/4 cup cold water
      2 teaspoons sherry
      1 teaspoon fish sauce
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1 TBS cornstarch

      Combine all the ingredients into a saucepan.  Make sure the cornstarch is dissolved well and then put over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Once it is boiling, turn the heat down to low and simmer for 5 minutes.  When the pasta and broccoli is cooked and drained, pour over the sauce and serve immediately.  Optional toppings of cilantro and green onions.
