Summer Pasta Salad

5.20.18

This healthy pasta salad makes for the perfect side dish for your summer BBQ! It’s made with Eat Banza chickpea pasta and a light vinaigrette dressing! Enjoy!

 

With the weather finally warming up, I’ve been craving all the summer food. Of course our grill isn’t working right now, but I figured why not make BBQ inspired food to satisfy my craving? 

This summer pasta salad dish is made with fresh veggies, tossed with a light homemade vinaigrette dressing, and packed with protein. Eat Banza pasta is my favorite because it’s loaded with 25g of protein per serving!!! It’s so easy to make too– you’re going to want this dish at all your BBQs and picnics this summer!
