I really love this recipe, like, in an unhealthy, almost obsessed way… Why? Because it so damn tasty! If you bring this to a potluck, I promise there will be nothing left over! With a few things that stay great in your fridge or pantry and a few items I bet you already have on hand, you are 20 minutes away from delicious! Did I mention it’s vegan? Well, it is, and it is good enough to show off for company. —Alexandra V. Jones
Test Kitchen Notes
WHO: Alexandra V. Jones is a beer-loving food blogger based in Portland, Oregon.
WHAT: A lightly spicy tahini sauce kicks up your weeknight spaghetti game.
HOW: Prep green beans, carrots, and a tahini dressing while your pasta boils—then toss it all together for fast, better-than-takeout sesame noodles.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The key to the tahini noodles is the sauce, and while many tahini noodles are tahini-heavy, this one is nicely balanced. It's umami-heavy, but light from the ginger and rice wine vinegar. And it's just a little spicy (like all sesame noodles should be, in our opinion). —The Editors
