10-Minute Creamy Garlic Pasta

When you’re mood is PASTA 😍…

 

πŸ’ͺ🏼 Hit your Training Day Macros with this deliciously simple bowl of protein & fiber packed pasta!

 

Thanks to the brilliant minds who transformed lentils and legumes into pasta πŸ”, it’s so easy to incorporate comforting dishes, flavors and textures into our healthy lifestyle.

 

πŸ“Œ But if you’ve never tried chickpea pasta – fair warning- the texture is not quite the same as white pasta. But just like everything else, a tasty sauce can change all of that.

Suggestions:

  • Vegans: omit parmesan or sub for vegan alternative.
  • Substitute chickpea pasta for a similar lentil-based pasta or gluten free pasta. The fewer ingredients the better.
  • If needing more protein – simply top with rotisserie chicken, lean ground turkey or tuna.
  • If you’re dining for one just cut the ingredients in half.
