Harvest Pasta Salad


Harvest Pasta Salad

This time of year, every kind of comfort food sounds delicious… Would you agree?

This is a great pasta salad, that is nourishing! Seriously, with 8.5 grams a fiber per cup this salad will actually keep you full! Not only is this salad nourishing, but its so easy, you can’t mess it up. The only thing I will tell you, is do not over cook the pasta. The chickpea pasta cooks in 7-9 minutes, so keep your eye on it or it will turn soggy.

Iv talked about this chickpea pasta before, 8g of fiber per serving, 11g of protein per serving, and the only ingredient is chickpea flour, so everyone can enjoy it. This pasta is loaded with the good stuff, and actually tastes good. We have been hooked on this pasta since July!

This pasta salad would also be a great way to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers!
