Pearl is the aunt of a friend, and this is auntie's recipe. I really liked it and thought others here would too! I liked it at room temperature, but you could serve it chilled.

Another winner from Lennie! I could really get addicted to these noodles. I used curly spirals instead of spaghetti, and they seemed to hold the dressing well. I also added a touch more ginger and a bit more tahini than called for, and it was a major taste explosion! I am going to make this often! Thanks Lennie, I adore your recipes!

MM...YUM! This pasta is so easy and delicious. Unlike the pasta I am used to having, it's not greasy or heavy. Very light and the flavour bounces off your tongue! I served it cold.
