  • 8 oz pasta (or more to preference)

For the herbed tahini dressing

  • ½ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • ¼ cup basil
  • cup mint optional
  • 1 garlic clove optional
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar optional
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoon water more to sauce consistency preference
  • pinch salt
  • pinch black pepper optional


  • Make the dressing by combining all the ingredients in a blender, and blending to a thick sauce. Adjust the consistency by adding more water if required.
  • Cook your pasta in salted water according to packet instructions. Drain and add back into your saucepan.
  • Stir the tahini herb sauce through the pasta, and allow to warm through for a few minutes (stir to prevent sticking to the pan).
  • Plate up your pasta, sprinkle with more herbs for garnish, and season with more salt and pepper if required. Enjoy!


  • Adjust the consistency of the sauce to preference by adding more tahini (to thicken) or water (to thin).
  • Change up the herbs if you prefer!
  • Use gluten-free pasta if required.
