Put the tomatoes, hummus, lentils, ½ cup water, and seasonings into a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stir until everything is incorporated, then reduce to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the lentils are cooked through.
Once the lentils are tender, add nutritional yeast and additional water, if needed. Remove from heat. Cook the pasta according to package instructions.
Once the pasta is done, remove ¼ cup of cooking liquid, then drain and add the pasta back to the pot. Pour in the sauce and reserved cooking liquid and toss to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings, as needed.
