Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk hummus and water in a small bowl. Set aside.

  • Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper; cook for 1 minute. Add artichoke hearts, kale, and olives. Gently stir in tuna, trying not to not break up large pieces; cook until the tuna is warmed, about 1 minute more. Stir in pasta. Remove from heat and toss with the hummus sauce. Top with feta and walnuts and drizzle with lemon juice, if desired.


To make ahead: Cook pasta up to 1 day ahead and refrigerate.
