After enjoying carrots and hummus for a few days a week, I sometimes lose interest in using hummus as a dip. So, one day I decided to add hummus to freshly cooked rotini and I liked it. The tangy “sauce” was made with 1/2 cup hummus and 3 Tbsp. pasta cooking water for 2 cups of cooked pasta. Then, I took the idea one step further and added hummus to homemade tomato sauce. If you’re going to try this recipe, I strongly suggest using homemade tomato sauce because commercial tomato sauces may be too strong/salty to mix with hummus.
