Tuna with Sesame Noodles

A fine festive dish served hot any time. But when it’s sweltering outside, chill out on the inside, and serve these noodles cold. If enjoying cold, add tuna just before serving.

Total Time 4-6 Servings


  • 1 pound linguini pasta
  • 3 cups petite green beans or haricot vert
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1½ tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated
