This Mediterranean hummus pasta is soooooo good. It's packed with plant based protein, veggies, and of course, lots of FLAVOUR!
You can make it in about 20-25 minutes so it's a perfect meal for busy week nights, or a quick dinner on a relaxing Friday evening (TGIF am I right?).
- 4 cups uncooked penne pasta
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- ½ red onion, roughly chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- ½ cup sun dried tomatoes, julienned
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- ½ cup marinated artichoke hearts
- 1 cup pitted kalamata olives, chopped
3 tbsp Mediterranean Seasoning
- 4 packed cups of spinach
- 1 ½ cups hummus
- 1 cup reserved pasta water
- Garnish: crumbled feta and chopped parsley
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta as directed on the package.
While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat and cook the onions for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, sun dried and fresh tomatoes, artichokes, olives, Mediterranean seasoning and spinach, and cook for 3-5 minutes or until all the spinach is wilted and the tomatoes have blistered.
When the pasta is al dente, reserve 1 ½ cups of the pasta water and drain the noodles.
Using the same pot you cooked the pasta in, add the hummus, reserved pasta water and the cooked vegetables. Stir together until a sauce forms, then mix in the pasta.
Portion into bowls, garnish with crumbled feta and chopped parsley, enjoy and feel nourished!
