This healthy 30-minute Vegan Pasta Primavera made with whole grains, fresh veggies and a creamy sauce is the perfect satisfying meal!
HOW DID I NOT THINK OF THIS SOONER? After loads of Thai pasta salad, we're onto warm dishes!
You really can't go wrong with carbs and hummus, am I right? Crackers, toast, rice cakes...NOODLES!
We eat a lot of pasta in the hummus household. It's so quick and easy to boil noodles, roast up some veggies, and dress it up with a flavorful sauce.
Speaking of sauce, did you know Sabra makes more than just hummus? When I laid mouth on their new Mediterranean Bean Dips made with white, red, and black beans plus veggies, herbs, and spices, I knew they were just destined to meet a noodle or three.
All I did to create this mega creamy and flavorful sauce was combine the Spinach and Roasted Garlic Mediterranean White Bean Dip (I love the Sundried Tomato and Basil flavor, too!) with leftover pasta water, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
So freaking easy! The flavors from mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, peas, kale and asparagus all cozy with the hummus sauce and spaghetti are just meant to be. Oh and no judgment if you eat crackers dipped in bean dip while the noodles are cooking.
Easy one pot meals like this Creamy Spring Vegetable Pasta Primavera are what make eating healthy possible for us during the week.
I know I'm not alone when I say that when I come home from a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is cook. And clean.
Don't get me wrong---I love food. But it's not about extravagance or hours in the kitchen. No thank you. It's about cooking with ingredients that are close to my heart. That make me feel cozy.
This recipe celebrates simplicity and ease. It's what cooking should be---familiar, wholesome, and satisfying.
My favorite thing about this pasta recipe is that it uses an everyday, affordable, and approachable ingredient in a new way.
We've got our whole grains, veggies, leafy greens, plant-powered protein, and healthy fats all in one pot. Did I mention it'll be on the table in less than 30 minutes? Cheers to making dinner simple again.
Enjoy this cozy meal with someone you absolutely love, preferably with a tall glass of wine. You deserve it!Print

Just made this dish and we love it!! Will definitely make it again?
So glad you liked it, Lois!
I loved this recipe! I actually used rosasted red pepper hummus since thanks to Costco I had a big container of it! Haha. I used red lentil penne. Only used mushrooms and kale since that's all I had. I did it as a one pot meal. Sautéed veggies in little bit of coconut oil. Lemon juice definitely completes it! Thank you!!
Mmmmm love your idea of roasted red pepper hummus!!
It was a life changing day when I realized that hummus makes an awesome vegan cream sauce. So easy and an extra serving of veg! This sounds like a great recipe!
Yesss it’s so creamy!!

I love this idea, however do you have a recipe to make white bean dip for this? I'd prefer to make my own. THanks!
Nope, sorry! You can use any hummus instead too 🙂 a can of chickpeas, tahini, lemon, garlic, and salt!
How is this as leftovers? Have you even had the chance to test that out? lol It looks like it would dry out...
I liked the leftovers. You can always add more water to thin out the sauce.
???? I LOVE to use hummus as a salad dressing & pasta sauce, but I sometimes forget to do so. This recipe will absoluteky be enjoyed in our household soon! I have a box of GF spaghetti noodles just waiting to be transformed into this incredible meal.

I haven't had cream-based pasta in a while! I prefer tomato-based ones, but seems like I'm going to have to give this a try. Hummus is SO my thing. ❤️
