3 tablespoons Krinos tahini, sesame paste
1 lemon- juiced
1 cup water
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 pound egg noodles or fettucine
2-3 tablespoons Krinos olive oil
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1. Beat together the tahini, lemon juice and water until smooth and creamy. Place the mixture in a food processor; add the garlic, yogurt, and cayenne and pulse until creamy and frothy.
2. Meanwhile, boil the noodles in ample salted water until tender. Drain and reserve 1/4-1/2 cup of the liquid. Toss the noodles with olive oil.
3. Add the pasta liquid to the tahini-yogurt mixture, place in a small saucepan, and heat for 2-4 minutes, just to warm through. Pour over the pasta and combine, together with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
