Creamy hummus pasta infused with fragrant chilli, garlic and rosemary!
My chilli and rosemary hummus pasta 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 🙂
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 <3
I am obsessed with hummus and could have it with nearly everything!
Hummus is so much more than just a dip for crudities.
I had some left over from yesterday’s Classic Hummus recipe (click here for the link) which I used as the base for the pasta sauce.
Hummus pasta may sound strange, but don’t knock it until you try it!
My classic hummus makes an amazing, delicious and CREAMY sauce that goes perfectly with pasta.
Like most of my recipes, my chilli and rosemary hummus pasta 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 🙂
I always make extra portions to keep in the fridge or freezer, so I have a go-to meal when I’m feeling lazy.
You can keep your hummus pasta in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Alternatively, you can freeze it for, well, ages.
The sauce may dry out a bit in the fridge, so just add a olive oil or water when heating it up 🙂
Give it a go and let me know how you get on!
