A sizable pot for the pasta. Yes, that's it!
Step 1: Make the pasta.
This process is simple. Start by bringing some water to a boil in a sizable saucepan over medium heat, then cook the noodles as directed on the package.

Keep 1 cup of the pasta water aside.

Step 2: Prepare the sauce.

Tahini, lemon juice, maple syrup, olive oil, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, salt, and pepper must all be combined with a spoon in a small bowl to form the pasta sauce. Until the sauce is rich and creamy, thoroughly mix.

Add small amounts of cold water to the bowl while stirring to thin out the sauce. The sauce needs to be thick enough to coat the back of the spoon but thin enough to run off the end.

Step 3: Toss the pasta with the sauce.
After removing the pasta from the pot:
  1. Save 1 cup of the cooking water.

  2. Refill the saucepan with the noodles and stir in the tahini sauce.

  3. Add 1/2 cup of the pasta water as you coat the noodles.

  4. Add additional pasta water as necessary to achieve the desired sauce consistency.


Ultimately, it all comes down to what your taste buds prefer. And this creamy pasta recipe will surely tickle your taste buds in all the right ways.
