Here’s a pasta dish for those who love the earthy Middle Eastern flavors of hummus: chick-peas, garlic, lemon, and tahini. The addition of watercress and cilantro picks up the color.

Make this on a day when you have no idea when everyone is going to eat, for this dish works at all temperatures: warm, room temperature, and chilled.

This is so satisfying, you’ll want only a light fruit salad to complete the meal.
