  1. Cook tagliatelle in a large saucepan of boiling water until al dente. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together tahini, lemon juice and water until smooth. Add garlic, yoghurt and pepper sauce.
  3. In a medium frying pan, heat oil over medium high heat. Saute red pepper and courgette in oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until tender crisp. Add tahini sauce and heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Do not boil or overcook: this sauce curdles easily. Toss tagliatelle with sauce.
