Penne Rigate


  • 1 box Dreamfields Penne Rigate
  • 1 medium beet peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/4 cup raw almonds (not roasted)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 15 oz can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil chopped (or 2 tablespoons dried)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup dried figs chopped
  • basil leaves (optional)


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Place in large bowl; set aside.
  2. Spray medium skillet with light coating of nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium until hot. Add chopped beets. Cook 5 minutes or until beets are tender, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Meanwhile, add wine and almonds to bowl of food processor. Pulse; push ingredients down with spatula. Continue pulsing about 1 minute, or until almonds and wine turn into a paste.
  4. Add hot beets and garlic to food processor. Pulse about 30 seconds to combine with almond mixture.
  5. When beets have cooled slightly, add oil and chickpeas to beet mixture; pulse about 1 minute or until smooth, stopping to push down ingredients with spatula as needed. Add basil and salt. Pulse until combined. Add water a tablespoon at a time if thinner consistency is desired.
  6. Serve hummus over plated pasta; top with figs, and basil leaves, if desired.
