If you follow me on my INSTA STORY @amandaccaballero you know I did this recipe just last night, I had plans to post another recipe but this recipe is soooo good that it made the cut before any other recipe. The recipe has the word “pasta” but it really is not pasta, one of the essential things about living a long healthy lifestyle is the ability to find healthy substitutes, hands down the is one my top 3 tips on how to live a long healthy lifestyle! That is why doing diets never last long, would you really go through out life without eating pasta, bread etc.??? Thought so! Now the key is finding that brand that is healthy and that you absolutely love. For this recipe I randomly found a delicious very healthy chickpea pasta from the brand Eat Banza this pasta is amazing, it has very few ingredients which is a good indication. I mixed this pasta with some Zucchini Spirals to add more nutrition value, the more the veggies the better! This recipe not only made the cute because is so delicious but also because it's a great recipe to make for a beautiful Summer day!
