Hummus pasta is a bit of a BOSH! classic, the video we posted on social media got millions and millions of views. We’ve cooked hummus pasta for dinner at home a lot over the past couple of years, so we decided to refresh and improve the recipe and include it in this book. Hope you love it as much as we do.
