We used our Roasted Butternut Squash Hummus, as it adds a hidden vegetable portion to the pasta and a little bit of extra colour too. For more colour, we stirred in some rocket (arugula) which gave it a nice peppery kick too. Then some chilli flakes went on top to finish it, obviously.
We are saving up all our spare pennies to do as much travelling this year as possible, so the first thing we are cutting back on is our food budget. Our cupboards are literally bursting with food like pasta and tinned beans, so putting them together was the first step to a budget meal. We usually just stir beans in to spaghetti with some olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and diced tomatoes, but we decided to turn the beans in to a sauce once and as it was basically hummus, it was a natural progression to stir actual hummus in to pasta. Life changing.
