For the month of May, Banza (Instagram: @eatbanza) is celebrating the deliciousness of plant-based meals. I wanted to support their #BanzaPlusPlants initiative the only way I know how, and that is through this delicious meal. Banza pasta is not your typical pasta. They ditched the typical wheat pasta, and substituted chickpeas instead. What does this mean for the pasta? Double the protein, four times more fiber, and nearly half the net carbs, without compromising the taste (https://www.eatbanza.com/pages/our-pasta). For this particular recipe, I decided to use the shell shaped pasta because these little shells act as mini bowls that hold the sauce, ensuring delicious goodness in every bite. So, if you like this recipe, leave a comment and be sure to share on social media using #BanzaPlusPlants and tag both @eatbanza and myself @nate_thechefboy_rd. Enjoy!
