I loved how my white queso dip recipe turned out, so I kept imagining how it would taste tossed with something like a gluten free chick pea pasta. This chick pea mac and cheese was even better than I expected. If you are like me, and nachos are one of your favorite comfort foods, then I think you will enjoy this recipe.
Forget the boring boxed version of mac and cheese and join me as I show you how to make chick pea mac and cheese. This recipe has just the right amount of spice and the added tomatoes and jalapeños just take it to another level.
While the boxed version of mac and cheese has almost no nutritional value, this version will provide you with a substantial amount of protein and fiber from the chick peas, (it also has less carbs than regular pasta) as well digestive benefits from both the chick peas and the coconut milk. If you like cherry tomatoes add in plenty for even more of a nutritional boost.
1 box of chick pea pasta or any gluten free pasta of your choice. I used cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatras brand of chick pea pasta. Don’t miss my fascinating interview with Dr. Sinatra below.
