Sesame-Ginger Noodles

So easy, so cheap and so good! The only things I ever have to buy are the ginger root and green onions and they cost about $1 total. I believe I found this recipe on the Kikkoman site.
1 lb. uncooked fresh Chinese-style thin egg noodles, spaghetti, vermicelli or linguine. (I use spaghetti)
1/4 c Kikkoman Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. distilled white vinegar
1 tsp. corn starch
2 tsp. grated fresh ginger root
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
3/4 c sliced green onions and tops
1 Tbsp. toasted sesame seed
3/4 tsp. Oriental sesame oil
Cook noodles according to package directions, omitting salt; drain, rinse under cold water and drain thoroughly. Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, cornstarch, ginger and 1/2 cup water. Heat oil in hot wok or large skillet over high heat. Add green onions and stir-fry 10 seconds. Add soy sauce mixture; cook, stirring, until sauce comes to a boil. Add noodles; cook, stirring, 1 minute or until sauce returns to boil and noodles are evenly coated with sauce. Remove from heat. Add sesame seed and oil; toss well to combine.
