Look for soba noodles on the Asian food aisle. If you can't find them, you can sub whole-wheat spaghetti (which takes about 10 minutes longer to cook). 

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces uncooked soba (buckwheat noodles)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cup (2-inch-long) julienne-cut red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup julienne-cut snow peas
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
