This recipe is from the New Moosewood Cookbook and is absolutely amazing. It makes a wonderful potluck dish because it can be eaten hot or cold (I personally prefer it hot) and is really simple to make. I prefer to use fusilli or gemelli pasta for whatever reason, but you can use any kind. :) It's also great with chicken or other meats.
- 1 lb pasta
- 1⁄4 cup peanut butter
- 1⁄4 cup sesame tahini
- 1⁄2 cup warm water
- 6 tablespoons soy sauce
- 4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons hot oil
- chopped scallion
- toasted sesame seeds
- Cook the pasta. While it is cooking, mix the peanut butter, tahini, water, soy, vinegar, and oils thoroughly. (TIP: The mixing, which can take some work, is made easier when you use warm or hot water.)
- When the pasta is done, drain, put in a bowl, pour on the sauce, and toss until well-coated. The scallions and seeds are optional; if desired, toss them on top.
- Serve either hot or at room temperature.
Very flavorful pasta--we liked it! I mixed the leftovers with some vegetables for a tasty lunch.
