Place the noodles in a bowl, we recommend ramen noodle for this recipe as it retains the firm texture after being cooked, but spaghetti or capellini work perfectly well also

Add the fried-bean-paste meat sauce, some fresh vegetable slices, sprinkle some spring onion and sesame seeds, it's pretty much the Chinese version of bolognese! add some carrots and cucumber. Sprinkle some spring onion and sesame on top and the dish is now ready !
