In small skillet, toast sesame seeds over medium heat, shaking pan occasionally, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Set aside.

Halve, core and seed red and yellow peppers. Cut each in half crosswise; thinly slice and place in large bowl. Peel and shred carrot; add to bowl.

Sesame Soy Dressing: Whisk together vegetable oil, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, sugar and chili paste; pour over vegetable mixture.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling, salted water, cook farfalle until tender but firm, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water; drain well and add to bowl. Toss to combine. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Add bean sprouts and onions; toss to combine. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
