SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was good because pasta is good and hummus is good, but it wasn't very interesting. After I was done with dinner I was full. That was the best part.

Is this dish served hot or cold?  Does it go over well either way?

This was great. I was cooking just for me so I made 1/2 cup of hummus by combining 1/4 cup store-bought hummus with a little less than 1/4 cup water and the juice of 1/2 lemon. I thought at first it would be too runny or watery but it turned out great. (I let the hummus sauce cook with the pasta and veggies for a little bit). Left off the parsley and didn't add any of the extras, though I imagine some red peppers would have been great.

I wish I knew about this in college...

Oh! I'm so trying this recipe this weekend. I adore hummus! I will probably use rigatoni noodles though...

WOW!  ;)b This was yummy! Why didn't I know this earlier?! Anyway, I made this with red bell peper hummus with garlic, onion, brocolli, chili and a variety of seasoning and I added applesauce because it got too salty. But this gooooooood! I love it. THANK YOU for sharing!

Made with whole wheat linguine, several cups of spinach (we buy it from costco and besides massive salads, have never had anything else to use it in), homemade hummus, marinated mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, calamata olives and about 5 cloves of garlic.  It was absolutely delicious, even the meat-eater fiance liked it!  I think you could throw almost anything in this and it would still be pretty tasty.

Only suggestion is to salt it.

I mixed the hummus with the spaghetti, so it was covered completely.  Very yummy! We all had second helpings of this dish.
