Tahini Parmesan Spaghetti Pasta Salad made with all gluten-free ingredients and the most delicious creamy tahini parmesan dressing.

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 15 mins


  • 8 ounces spaghetti of choice (I used this gluten-free and grain-free one)
  • 2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in halves
  • cup creamy tahini
  • ¾ cup finely grated parmesan cheese + additional for topping
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • Red pepper flakes for topping


  1. Cook pasta according to instructions on the box and reserve about 3/4 cup of the pasta water before straining
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the tahini and parmesan cheese (season with salt and pepper if you’d like) then add in about 1/2 cup the pasta water and mix (add in more if needed or if the sauce is too thick still)
  3. In a large bowl, toss together the pasta, tomatoes, dressing, scallions and arugula to evenly combine
  4. Garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes and serve cold or at room temperature (I like to make this a few hours ahead of time so it all really marinates together!)


*Store leftovers in fridge for 3 days or so!
