For decades, even centuries, pasta has been viewed as a classically Italian fare. As such, marinara, carbonara, pesto and Alfredo have long been the preferred pairings for the al dente treat. However, times are changing. We are in the middle of a full-on foodie revolution, and many traditional cultural dishes are being reinvented and reimagined. To wit, the growing interconnection of cultures has resulted in new flavor fusions that boggle the mind—and your taste buds!
If you had told an ancient Italian about hummus pasta sauce, you’d have received nothing but incredulous stares, and perhaps a not-so-polite request to vacate the premises! But in recent years, hummus sauce recipes have started popping up, and they have persisted because people love their rich flavors, creamy texture, and nutrient density.
