Pasta with Tahini Sauce

1/2 cup tahini, not the raw type
1/3 cup or more hot water
1 tablespoon or more tamari or soy sauce
1 tablespoon or more fresh lemon juice
1 clove chopped garlic
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
pinch of cayenne pepper, a must
olive oil, optional
cooked pasta, spirals work best

Whip the tahini and hot water with a fork until all the lumps disappear. You can microwave for about 10 seconds until a creamy consistency is achieved, like Alfredo sauce. Add tamari, lemon juice, and garlic and blend well with fork. If it's too bland, add more tamari. If it's too thin/thick, add more tahini/water/olive oil. When you have the desired flavor, add a very small pinch of cayenne pepper. Then add a tablespoon of nutritional yeast and blend well again. Heat again in microwave until hot but not simmering and pour over hot pasta and toss.
