For the first time in the history of FOREVER, the Woo children have told me. .. . . . I gave them too much to eat for lunch.
THEY WERE STUFFED.
A feat none too easy to accomplish.
And by A VEGETARIAN PASTA DISH, no less.
These noodles, rich and THICK with a creamy Tahini sauce, climbs to the top of the comfort food favorites list for sure. What I wasn’t expecting is, how incredibly filling they are. Usually when I’m eating noodles I just eat until I’m in a coma like state, and wake up to find that I’ve eaten a full pound.
If that’s you (no judgement here), this is the recipe you’ve been waiting for.
I really think the decadence allows you to savor every. single. bite. And in doing that, your brain enjoys each satisfying morsel, and kindly notifies you promptly, that you have had your fill, and that you can come back and eat more later.
That’s an AMAZING meal in my book.
Try it. I really think you’ll like it!
