The Result: Success! Matt said it was one of the best things that I ever made for him (you never know what will tickle their fancy.) Eli liked the noodles and actually ate the carrots. The good thing about this method of cooking the carrots was that they were not too well done. Yay! Another yay, a one pot meal. What I did differently was 1) I used whole wheat linguine pasta. 2) I had a roast so I did it in the crock pot and shredded it in. 3) I didn't have the right type of dressing so I mixed up vinegar and sesame oil. The dressing ingredients when I looked at them online were listed as: WATER, APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, SOY SAUCE (WATER, WHEAT, SOYBEANS, SALT), HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, SUGAR, SOYBEAN OIL, SESAME SEEDS, CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF GINGER, ROASTED GARLIC, CARAMEL COLOR, SESAME OIL, ROASTED GARLIC JUICE, XANTHAN GUM, POTASSIUM SORBATE AND CALCIUM DISODIUM EDTA AS PRESERVATIVES, PROPYLENE GLYCOL ALGINATE, POLYSORBATE 60, VINEGAR, SPICE, NATURAL FLAVOR, SALT. (I need some soy sauce.)
