Raise your hand if you love pasta! It’s kind of the best, isn’t it? We love taking a fan favorite and adding protein and veggies to increase nutritional value and keep you full longer.
This veggie pasta bake is made in one pan. The only additional dishes needed are a cutting board, knife, and a cheese grater. Something about having very little clean up makes this healthy pasta bake even tastier.
While regular semolina pasta is delicious and has a place in our hearts, we use garbanzo bean pasta in this recipe to boost the protein and keep you full longer. If you’re interested in cooking up more satiating meals, we invite you to check out our article “Eat Less, Feel Just As Full” where we outline some ingredients you can include to stay full longer while consuming less.
This dish comes together by roasting your favorite veggies in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Next, add in your cooked pasta and tomato sauce of choice. Top with shredded cheese and broil. It’s crispy on top and super satisfying!
This can be adapted to your dietary needs. Use plant-based cheese if needed and substitute with your pasta of choice.
