Noodles in a spinach and garlic sauce

Ching-He Huang‘s gorgeous noodle recipe is ready in just 20 minutes but packs a punch of flavour.
She says: “Noodles are a symbol of long life. These ‘longevity noodles’ are traditionally eaten by Fujian Chinese, dressed in a garlic sesame oil. This is my modern take, served in a garlic spinach sauce and topped with spring onions and sesame seeds.”

Longevity noodles are a specific type of very long, thin wheat-flour noodle. My favourite brand is Mong Lee Shang (from larger Asian supermarkets). I love the packaging – it has a picture of an old man with a long white beard holding a peach. If you can’t find them, substitute egg noodles.
An aromatic white is the champion here. You could go for a New Zealand or Chilean sauvignon blanc, but the crisp zestiness of a riesling is even better. Try a dry Aussie or an off-dry German Mosel version.
