Meatless Monday Veggie Pesto Pasta (Gluten Free)

Pasta

Do you partake in Meatless Monday?  I usually don’t…but I do like the whole idea behind it and think it’s a GREAT way to focus on veggies and other sources of protein.  I titled this ‘Meatless Monday’ because it sounds good and it’s actually a thing, but this meal is a winner for any night you need a quick and easy dinner in under 30 minutes!  I shared a picture of this meal last week and I received some requests for the recipe – so today you’re going to get it!  Chickpeas are actually one of my favorite foods.  Random fact; I may or may not eat an abnormal amount of hummus- but that obsessions is better left for a different post 🙂  Chickpeas are packed with fiber, iron and protein which leave you feeling full and satisfied while providing key nutrients.  It’s a win-win!  Mix those little powerhouses with other tasty vegetables, some pesto for flavor and some brown rice pasta for some healthy carbohydrates and you got yourself a delicious and nutritious meatless, gluten-less meal!  So what are you waiting for?  Give this recipe a try tonight!
