This was inspired by my lovely aunt who is currently living in the mountains just outside Rome – lucky lady!!! She posted pics of her rosemary, chilli and chickpea pasta and I had to give it a go, with my own twist πŸ™‚

I have never had rosemary in pasta and had never even thought about using it in any pasta recipes, but it really works! Not only does the flavour compliment the chilli and garlic, it smells AMAZING! Shout out to Auntie Dido ❀

I am obsessed with hummus and could have it with nearly everything! It’s so much more than just a dip for crudities. I had some left over from yesterday’s recipe (click here for the link) which I used as the base for the pasta sauce – so creamy and delicious!

Like most of my recipes, this is real quick and easy! You can whip it up in just 20 minutes, so you can even enjoy a lovely home cooked meal on weekdays when you’re tight on time πŸ™‚

Give it a go and let me know how you get on!
