Servings: 2 people
- 200 g Pasta
- 150 g Hummus Plain
- 2 Onions Red, Medium
- 10-15 Kalamata Olives
- 1 tbsp Balsamic Glaze
- 1/2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/2 Lemon Juice

Finely slice the onions. Add the oil to a pan and cook the onions on high heat with a pinch of salt until translucent and slightly charred (caramelized).
Bring to a boil 700 ml of salted water. Boil the pasta 2 minutes less than recommended cooking time on the packet.
In the meantime add the balsamic glaze and the olives (sliced) to the pan with the onions. Sauté for 1 minute then combine the hummus and the juice of half a lemon. Add around 1/2 cup of pasta water and stir well.
Drain the pasta al dente, making sure to keep some extra water.
Add the pasta to the pan with the sauce, coat well and simmer for a couple of minutes. Add extra water if too dry.
Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed and serve the pasta topped with finely sliced chives.
