Spring Lemon Tahini Pasta

If you are looking for a quick and easy dinner, this pasta fits the bill!  It comes together in about 15 minutes, it is hearty, healthy and most importantly delicious!  I used tahini and lemon to make a healthy creamy sauce, and combined it with a whole wheat pasta, broccoli and peas for a substantial fiber rich meal.
