Spicy Hummus and Roasted Vegetable Pasta

This is my favorite type of food. A little bit of comfort, with a whole lot of nutrition. This pasta dish is bulked up with a ton of roasted veggies which add delicious nutty flavor and color. And the flavor combination of spicy hummus and sweet sundried tomatoes will keep you coming back for more.  If you want to add extra protein, I would recommend adding grilled chicken or salmon on the side.


1. Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the broccoli, cauliflower and carrots on top. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes.


2. Meanwhile, cook the rigatoni in salted boiling water until al dente, about 12 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup of pasta water.


3. Toss the cooked pasta, roasted veggies, hummus, pasta water, lemon zest/juice and sundried tomatoes in a large bowl.


4. Transfer the pasta to serving dishes and garnish with almonds and basil. Drizzle with olive oil and serve.
