This dish is full of ingredients that you can store in your pantry, such as noodles, soy sauce, and tahini (sesame paste). After you toss the cool noodles in the creamy sauce, drizzle them with Chinese chili oil to add a little kick to this simple side dish.From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).
Fennel pollen, a spice harvested from fennel flowers that are collected at the peak of bloom, has a sweeter and more intense flavor than the fennel seed. Try it in this spaghetti dish from chef Mario Batali's "Molto Gusto" cookbook.
This recipe's quickness depends on getting all the sauce ingredients and cooking equipment ready before you start cooking. Then, when the water's boiling, start the pasta, and saute the sauce at the same time.
