This was unbelievably fantastic and satisfying, and to think at first I was worried it might be bland! I didn't have onion powder so I used finely chopped onions instead. I also used skim milk, spaghetti, and a generous amount of pepper, and skipped the tahini which I didn't have. Even with all those changes it made a quick, easy, and lip-smacking lunch! Thanks Mirjam, this one's a sure keeper!

This is really delicious! Everyone in my family really loves it and often encourages seconds once the tummys still have the space. I didn't have onion powder so I chopped onions instead. I also used canned corn instead of frozen corn and added a little garlic to it. It's excellent! It's also wonderful if you add chicken breast with the pasta; even bacon by itself taste good with it. I definitely recomment it. It's the bomb!!!

I followed this recipe to the letter, okay almost, I used canned corn instead of frozen. I was surprised at how good it was. I found it quite filling as well. I would recommend this recipe to friends, and I will make it again soon for my family.

This recipe looked odd to me at first but I decided to try it (partly because the other reviewer didn't really make this recipe). I stuck to the recipe with minor exceptions. I added chopped garlic as well as onion powder plus I added some corn starch to thicken the sauce a bit. I used a heavy dose of pepper but only a tiny fraction of the salt, plus I used the optional tahini. The results were very good though not spectacular. I added more pepper on top and a bit of grated paramasian cheese. The pepper helped but the cheese didn't add much. This sauce does have great potential, I think it would be great with curry for a shrimp or chicken curry dish. For those not on a low salt diet I think this would be even better with the normal salt quanity.

I love this sauce! I used the tahini and onion powder, no garlic (and I am a huge garlic lover - I didn't even miss it) and soy milk, and it was fantastic! I threw in some diced tofu as an afterthought and left the sauce chunky instead of pureeing. It was awesome and would be great just over tofu as well.

Not our preference. The sauce was strange. Edible, but not to be repeated.

I'm sorry to say that I was disapointed with this recipe. My first batch I followed the recipe exactly. It tasted too dietetic for me so I made a new batch with some higher fat items...

What a surprise this turned out to be. A great change from the usual ground beef and tomato sauce. I threw in a bunch of herbs and substituted peanut butter for the tahini. A bit of hot sauce and it was done. Great over rotini pasta. Thanks Mirjam.
