Sesame Peanut Noodles

Another of the choices for my studio picnic with my sister and also another from Nigella Express. Next time I make it (and there will be a next time) I think I'd scatter over some crushed salted peanuts. This would be great to make at the beginning of the week as a yummy, easy lunch.
