Pasta With Hummus (a creamy pasta)

Pasta cooked with hummus is a guilt-free recipe without loads of cheese which we usually add to our pasta.
In this recipe, I have replaced the cheese with hummus(a creamy chickpea paste with tahini- a creamy white til/sesame paste)
In this way, this dish is a complete and balanced one with carbs, proteins n vitamins. Pasta completes the carb part, Hummus the proteins and veggies add vitamins
This dish is a mix of two cuisines, one is the Italian part and the other one is the Middle Eastern especially the Egyptian Hummus is an integral part of their cuisine. Hummus adds creaminess to the texture of the pasta
The kids who love pasta to addiction can be fed with this healthy version also this version is bliss for those who are vegan and follow a weight-loss program
