Notes

  • You can use gluten-free, whole-grain or legume-based pasta for this recipe.
  • Add any veggies of your choice to your pasta, we like zucchini, mushrooms, bell peppers and cauliflower the most!
  • Instead of chickpeas, add any legumes, tofu, tempeh or vegan sausage or crumbles to this dish!
  • This recipe works when using hummus instead of cheese sauce! Make it cheesier by adding store-bought cheese shreds.
