Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods
Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.
Add pasta to the same boiling water and cook until just al dente. Drain and rinse under cold water. Drain again. Put back into pot. Add asparagus, scallions, carrots, snow peas and sauce. Toss well. Arrange on a large platter or in a pasta bowl. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve at room temperature.
*To toast sesame seeds, place seeds on a piece of foil and bake in a 375° oven for 10 minutes stirring often.
