Pasta With Veggies In a Tahini and Yogurt Sauce

Pasta With Veggies In a Tahini and Yogurt Sauce


"A creamy garlic sauce and a medley of vegetables served over egg noodles make a superb one dish meal. Of course if you were looking for something a little more elaborate, a Greek salad, thick slabs of feta cheese, and warm pita bread are wonderful accompaniments."

  1. Cook noodles in a large pot of boiling water until al dente. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together tahini, lemon juice, and water until smooth. Add garlic, yogurt, and pepper sauce.
  3. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Saute red pepper and zucchini in oil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender crisp. Add tahini sauce, and heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Do not boil or overcook: this sauce curdles easily. Toss noodles with sauce.

I think that this is a great recipe, just poorly constructed. Instead of taking the time to strain the healthy whey out of the yogurt, just decrease the water according to how thin your yogurt i...

The beauty of this recipe is that it can include any vegetables that you like. In fact, I think there are far better choices than those suggested (and a lot more of them), including peppers of a...

Great! I did tinker the recipe (actually used the recipe as a guide and did my own thing.) This is a keeper and it seems like one can go in many directions in terms of veggies and added spices...

Not a fan...thought it was very bland. I did use less water as other's instructed, but it was still a little watery. I will not make this again.

Very good! I mixed up the sauce without water and let it stand in a bowl, then sauteed some onions, garlic, cayenne, and smoked paprika in olive oil. Added some roasted red peppers and the cooke...

this was alright...but it was missing a little something something -
