Monday, 2 March 2009

linguine tahini

I am sure most of you have heard about the Blogger Aid Cookbook event that is organised by Val from More Than Burnt Toast, Ivy from Kopiaste and Giz from Equal Opportunity Kitchen. The goal of this event is to bring together food bloggers from all around the world to alleviate world hunger. This project involves the making of a cookbook which will be on sale through amazon.com in November/ December this year and all the profit from sales will go directly to The World Food Programme (WFP), the UN food aid agency.

You can contribute by submitting one original recipe that you have not published before, non-bloggers are also welcome. The deadline is 31st March 2009. More details can be found here. I urge you all to join me in this good cause as every little helps!

So, here is my contribution – Linguine in Spicy Tahini Sauce. I have a love for linguine as most of you should know by now. It is my ultimate comfort food. I decided to submit this because it is relatively simple to prepare, healthy and satisfying.
