Drain the spaghetti, drain it and add it to the sweet potato strips in the pan for 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Wash the arugula and mint and shake dry. Clean, wash and slice the radishes. Clean, wash and chop the spring onions. Finely chop the remaining garlic. Squeeze lime. Mix garlic with lime juice and sesame oil, season to taste with salt and pepper.
