Mediterranean Pasta with Spinach + Artichokes + Kalamata Olives

MEDITERRANEAN PASTA WITH SPINACH + ARTICHOKES + KALAMATA OLIVES

I’m just going to be real with you… I am a pasta snob. There, I said it, Ha! When I found out I had Celiac Disease, I thought, how the heck is an Italian intolerant to pasta and bread! I am so grateful that gluten free pastas have come such a long way, where really you (well I) can’t even tell a difference *fist pump, high five! Getting off my pasta soap box, I wanted to try new ways to enjoy pasta other than with the traditional tomato sauce. This Mediterranean pasta features a hummus based sauce, wild, right?! It’s so fresh and light, and paired with spinach + kalamata olives, this dish is sure to be on your summer menu. Did I mention that it only takes 20 minutes to make? Chyaaa.. *fist pump… again
