Blue cheese macaroni with hummus & sun-blush tomatoes

Serves 4

Prep 15 minutes

Cooking 15 minutes

150g good-quality hummus

200g sun-blush tomatoes, chopped

4 tablespoons frozen chopped basil

4 tablespoons frozen chopped parsley

2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

500g cooked macaroni pasta (approx. 260g

dried weight), kept warm and oiled (see page 58, step 2)

200g blue cheese

salt and freshly ground black pepper breadsticks or rice cakes, to serve

Nice mix of flavours and texture here.

I use a mild blue cheese, but goats’ cheese will also work. Just remember to leave the macaroni warm and oiled before you mix all the other ingredients.

Place the hummus, tomatoes, herbs and vinegar into a bowl and mix really well.

  1. Add the warm pasta and fold through. You may need to add a dash of water to let it out a little.
  2. Finally add the cheese, salt and pepper, then lightly mix. Serve with breadsticks or rice cakes.
