Olive & Hummus Pasta

Olive & Hummus Pasta

This super easy pasta dish is my go-to when I’m in a rush or too hungry to even think. Not only do you avoid having to make a sauce, but the only real cooking you have to do is boil up some pasta.

I love the combination of the cool & creamy hummus, with the tang of the olives and the peppery rocket. It’s also such an easy way of getting more greens in!
