Like a creamy alfredo with way less cream, this hearty dish is rich in protein and flavour.


Ingredients

  • 200 g rigatoni pasta
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 broccoli crowns , cut into florets (6 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups store-bought marinara sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup store-bought roasted red pepper hummus
  • 1/2 cup 10% cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley , (optional)

Instructions

  • In a large pot of boiling water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water and then drain.
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add oil, then broccoli. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3 to 4 min. Stir in marinara, pasta water and salt. Cook until broccoli is just tender, 2 to 3 min. Stir in hummus and cream until sauce is warmed through.
  • Add drained pasta to sauce and toss until combined. Divide among bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan and parsley.
