Method

Toasted Sesame Spaghetti is a community recipe submitted by Lustylinda and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Boil the spaghetti in lighted salted water. I always add a drop of oil to the pan to prevent the pasta from sticking.
  • Whilst the spaghetti is cooking, in a dry pan, lightly toast the sesame and sunflower seeds, being careful not to burn them. The amount of seeds should just be enough to sparsely cover the spaghetti.
  • When the pasta is ready, drain and return to the pan. Add the toasted seeds and anywhere between a drop and a tablespoon of toasted sesame seed oil (depending on the amount of pasta) and stir well. The oil should only LIGHTLY coat the pasta. Anymore than that and you will feel like you're eating the oil that has been drained out of the engine of your car.
  • Tumble the spaghetti into a serving dish. Optional, top with either freshly chopped coriander or parsley. Yum yum.
