    1/2 cup tahini (sesame paste)

    1 pound spaghetti
    4 scallions, sliced diagonally (white and green parts)
    1 yellow bell pepper, julienned

Tips

To save time, while cooking the pasta, add the broccoli stalks for the last 2 minutes of cook time and drain together.

Add chicken or tofu for a protein or throw in more veggies for a bulked up vegetarian meal.


Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and blanch the broccoli florets for 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Place the garlic, ginger, vegetable oil, tahini, peanut butter, soy sauce, sherry, honey, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes in a food processor fitted with a steel blade and puree until smooth. Set aside.

Add a splash of olive oil to a large pot of boiling salted water and cook the spaghetti according to the directions on the package. Drain the pasta in a colander, place it in a large bowl, and while still warm, toss with the sauce. Add the scallions, peppers, and broccoli and toss well. Serve warm or at room temperature.
