This high-protein artichoke parmesan pasta is a breeze to make with only 4 ingredients. It’s ideal for meal prep days! A creamy and comforting dish the whole family will love. It’s both vegetarian and gluten-free.
The shorter the ingredient list, the better. Am I right? Whether it’s ingredients in a protein bar or ingredients in a high-protein pasta recipe, long ingredient lists just turn me off. This is one of the simplest pasta recipes I’ve made. It may even be easier than making boxed mac and cheese! Of course, it’s much healthier, but it still has that creamy, comforting goodness from the Parmesan cheese. Plus, the Banza chickpea pasta provides 20g of plant-based protein per serving, so there’s no need to add a meat source, like grilled chicken (though that would be delicious). This Meal Prep High-Protein Artichoke Parmesan Pasta is perfect for a “Meatless Monday” if you ask me!
If you are crunched on time for meal prep, make sure this recipe is located at the top of your list. It will only take you about 15 minutes to have a filling and wholesome, protein-packed meal ready for the week. Enjoy!
