What to Serve with One-Pot Creamy Vegetable Pasta 

I love making side salads with salads but if I am feeling wild I will make homemade bread. There is nothing compared to homemade bread seriously! I am still trying to create a healthier bread but that is for another post.

This recipe is very filling especially if you use chickpea pasta so you can skip out on the side. If you want to add more protein you can add shrimp or any meat of your choice. I think ground turkey or Italian sausage would go really well with it!

Substitutions 

  • If you are not into chickpea pasta then you can use whatever you like! I just try to stick with gluten-free pasta because regular white pasta can make be very bloated, plus it is fewer carbs. 
  • You can use greek yogurt instead of cream cheese to make it healthier and ditch the parmesan cheese. However, I think the cream cheese is what really makes this dish! 
  • Frozen spinach will work in this recipe as well. Honestly, you can add any vegetables that you like. In my video showing you how to make it, I added mushrooms and it was delicious!
