2. Cook the noodles.

Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the noodles according to package directions until al dente. Drain and rinse well with cold water. Put the noodles into a large bowl and toss with 1 Tbsp sesame oil to prevent noodles from sticking together. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
