Noodles with Tofu & Roasted Sesame Squash

I la la love noodles! They are so simple and you can pretty much add any veggies to them, so they're perfect for a student budget! I like to use Ginger, Garlic and Chilli as they are so fresh and fiery and work well as a base for most Asian dishes. The flavours really compliment each other and you don't really need to add much else! I've never had Butternut Squash with Noodles before but it worked really well roasted and sprinkled with Sesame Seeds.
