Paleo Pasta with Homemade Pesto Sauce

IMG_1806Your first thought may be, ”How can pasta be grain free?” Easy! Banza is a chickpea pasta company that makes all different kinds of pasta shapes made from a clean list of ingredients that you can actually pronounce! It’s crazy how similar it tastes to regular white pasta and the best part: it’s filled with protein from the chickpeas!! Want to get your hands on SIX boxes of Banza’s chickpea pasta? Enter my giveaway on my instagram: @balancedbryana
It’s open until April 22!


  • homemade pesto (click here to get recipe)
  • spiralized zucchini
  • one bunch of kale
  • Banza chickpea pasta (or whatever kind you have!)


  1. Cook pasta according to the directions on the box
  2. While the pasta is cooking, sauté zucchini noodles and kale with garlic, pepper, and salt. It should be nice and tender after about 3-4 minutes of sautéing.
  3. Add zucchini and kale to a bowl, then add the pasta, and lastly add the pesto and you’re done!
