This One Pot Creamy Hummus Pasta is ready in 20 minutes! This vegan pasta dish is kept light by using hummus in place of typical cream sauce.
Pasta is a staple at my house.
I used to think that pasta marinara was the easiest meal to make, but I have a new obsession in my life.
And it is this One Pot Creamy Hummus Pasta.
It is flavorful, simple and delicious. Also it is ready in 20 minutes...win!
I love a creamy pasta, but don't love the heavy feeling I have after eating it.
Even with cashew cream, you can still feel weighed down.
Using hummus keeps this light while still giving you plenty of smooth texture.
This pasta gets another layer of flavor and texture with the addition of fresh garlic, sun dried tomatoes and wilted spinach.
It is just a bowl of yum.
