Garlic Hummus and Spinach Pasta

Garlic Hummus and Spinach Pasta

Who knew you could make hummus into a creamy, garlicky, lemony sauce for pasta?! I mean, sign me up. I like hummus, I like pasta, and combined was a tasty mix. I used zucchini, spinach, and tomatoes as the veggies inside and the hummus as my sauce base. I added some pasta water to thin the hummus out into a sauce and added in the spaghetti noodles. I added some fresh tomatoes on top for freshness and sprinkled Everything but the Bagel seasoning on top because that’s how I usually top my hummus. It’s a simple and easy dinner, but something different to mix things up.
