5 Minute Creamy Hummus Pasta Sauce

Every so often I’ll make my girls this homemade, incredible rich, alfredo pasta. As I’m making the sauce, I watch as I whisk it’s creamy consistency around and around, and I can’t help but think…”Who needs bathing suit season anyway! I’d much rather just drink this.”

I’m not saying eating alfredo sauce means that you won’t fit into a bathing suit.

I’m saying the way I WOULD EAT alfredo sauce means…I wouldn’t be able to get off the couch.

I’ve been wanting to make an incredibly delicious and healthy alfredo pasta for The Diva Dish for a long time. I still haven’t perfected it, but I did however come up with this recipe when I was having a rough day and wishing for some comfort food.

It’s a quick and easy version of a creamy pasta that is EXTREMELY easy, so much so that you might actually be able to sit down and enjoy lunch. Not a lot of cleanup, serves 1-2 people…Oh, and it’s good for you! IMG_6808

  1. In a bowl whisk together all of the ingredients until combined and creamy. Pour over warm pasta or warm vegetables.

I’m headed off to Virginia this weekend, so there might not be a video on Friday…SHOCKER!

In the mean time, pray for me that I don’t have a complete anxiety attack on the airplane. I’m incredibly afraid of flying, I might need a horse tranquilizer pill to calm my nerves…

  1. I love that you used coconut oil! Definitely going to try this one out post-cleanse. :)

  2. Such a great idea! I’ll definitely be making this. :)

  3. This sounds super delish, and I always have these ingredients on hand! :) Great idea! I bet some pesto hummus with some extra fresh herbs added would be really yummy, too.
