Full disclosure: I am a Banza Pasta RD Ambassador and this post is in relation to their January contest to #ResolveToEatMorePasta. I was given coupons + free product to make recipes, but the recipe and thoughts are all my own!
It is officially winter (it was 15 degrees yesterday) and all I want is warm comforting food.
And nothing says comfort food more than a bubbly casserole of pasta + meat + cheese.
AKA this Banza Pasta Faux Lasagna.
It is my traditional Faux Lasagna with a twist – instead of regular pasta noodles, I used Banza Cavatappi which increased the protein + fiber content of this dish. As a dietitian, I love ways to add extra fiber into dishes that my family loves!
Plus, since the chickpea pasta cooks up very tender in a short amount of time, the whole casserole bakes up super quick. Which means that I can get dinner on the table ASAP. And leftovers heat up perfectly in the oven or in the microwave (because #NoSadDeskLunch here!).…
