If you, like me, consider a tub of hummus to be a staple in your fridge for mid-afternoon snacking sessions, this is your ultimate pantry pasta. Hummus is far more than a dip — it’s a garlicky, creamy condiment that’s begging to be transformed into pasta sauce. It coats pasta just enough that it provides a luscious mouthfeel yet hardly weighs it down, which means there’s plenty of room for additions.
A raid through the pantry for a jar of roasted red peppers, along with some salty kalamata olives and feta, gives the pasta a hearty dose of bold flavor with every bite. Toss a little parsley or basil in for color and freshness. Did you notice the only thing we’re actually heating up is the pasta? It’s one of those dishes that tastes like a whole lot more effort was involved.
