You are going to LOVE this one …. because it has just 3 main ingredients!

It’s packed with fiber and plant-based protein and is meal-prep friendly (just double or triple it).

If you haven’t tried bean-based pasta, now is the time! They’re more filling than regular pasta and help keep you feeling fuller longer.

NOTE: Chickpea-based pasta will work, too.
