  1. In a large pot of lightly salted boiling water, cook pasta 10 to 12 minutes, or until al dente.
  2. While pasta is cooking, stir together tahini and lemon juice. Place in a food processor with yogurt, water, and garlic cloves; process until smooth.
  3. Heat the oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook until soft. Add the mushrooms, and cook until soft. During the final few minutes of cooking add the bell pepper; the pepper should be still crispish.
  4. Drain the pasta. Toss with the yogurt-tahini sauce, chopped parsley, and freshly ground black pepper. Serve the vegetable saute over the noodles.

this is bad!!!!

A little bland.

Unique flavor - Wonderfu!

I had to add a lot of salt and pepper just to bring some kind of flavor out from this bland sauce. Without it, it tasted...well...tangy. The vegetables do add some sweetness to it. I'd suggest t...

I tried this recipe yesterday. It was delicious! I used green rather than red peppers and added them sooner as my old teeth needed a little softer bite. Even my finicky husband loved this rec...

I liked this quite a bit; if you salt and pepper to taste, it bring out some nice, subtler flavors. I do think that the vegetable saute is a must, and I agree with others' comments that the sauc...

I just remove the tahini from the recipe because I can't eat it, and add chopped cucumber and red pepper to the yogurt sauce.Delicious!!!!!!!mmm
