Hummus pasta is the easiest weeknight dinner to make when you don’t feel like cooking. This hearty pasta recipe comes together with just 5 ingredients and 15 minutes! 


  • 8oz pasta of choice (gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1/2 cup reserved pasta water
  • 1 cup garlic hummus*
  • 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup spinach
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. In a medium pot, cook pasta al dente in salted water according to package instructions.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat a little oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Once hot, sauté the onions 2-3 minutes until translucent. Add in the tomatoes and cook an additional 2 minutes. 
  3. Drain the pasta when it is done cooking, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Set pasta aside and do not rinse! 
  4. Add the hummus to the saucepan with the sautéed veggies, and slowly stir in the pasta water until it’s smooth and creamy. Add spinach and cook until wilted.
  5. Pour the pasta into the saucepan and stir until evenly coated with sauce. Taste and add salt and pepper if desired. 


* If you use plain hummus, sauté 2–3 cloves of minced garlic when you cook the other veggies.
