Method: 
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together tamari, tahini, almond butter, vinegar, lemon juice, toasted sesame oil and hot sauce (if using). Add pasta, cabbage, carrots and green onions. Toss to coat noodles thoroughly with sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
