6-Minute Chickpea Pesto Pasta w/ Brussels Sprouts

Happy Saturday! I am up bright and early with coffee in hand and an Iced Gingerbread Clif Bar ready to blog! Have you tried the Iced Gingerbread Clif Bars??? Listen, I use to steer clear of Clif Bars because I knew they were high in sugar and carbs, blah blah blahhhh. But guess what? I have been challenging all food fears I use to have this year and man am I feeling good! You already know 2018 was a big year for me and this is just another thing to add to the list 🙂

And p.s. holycrapclifbarsaresogoodwhydidievernoteatthem?

6-Minute Chickpea Pesto Pasta w/ Brussels Sprouts

Serves 1 – but its easy to make more!

  • 1/2 C chickpea pasta (I used Banza)
  • 1 T green pesto
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 bag steamable brussels sprouts
  • salt & garlic powder to taste

Cook pasta according to package, throw those brussels in the microwave for 5 minutes, remove pasta from heat & drain water once cooked, add in pesto, olive oil, brussels sprouts, and sprinkle with salt and garlic powder. BOOM – Done!

Also, you should eat it with sourdough bread because you can never have enough carbs, ya know?
