High Protein and Gluten-Free Pasta

Get a boost of protein and serving of comfort in this nutritious recipe.

For this dish, we used gluten-free chickpea linguine for a couple of reasons. It is high in both fiber and protein, so it will increase satiety and satisfaction all day (or night) long. It is also a great option for anyone who cannot eat gluten. I usually use Banza chickpea pasta, but any brand will work! If you’re in a pinch, you can always just use whole wheat or regular pasta, as well. Any shape can be swapped in, too!

Cook Up this Chicken Alfredo

Cajun flavors meet Italian cuisine in this yummy dish!

Start by cooking the chickpea pasta according to package instructions. Meanwhile, coat the chicken breasts with the cajun blackened seasoning. Heat a large cast iron skillet on medium-high. Once hot, melt the butter in the skillet. Add the seasoned chicken and cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Remove it from the heat. Once it’s had time to rest, you can slice it into strips.

Get a new skillet or clean out your original one, and add the other two tablespoons of butter. Add your garlic, shallot, dried mixed herbs, salt, and pepper to the pan and cook for about one minute. Next, pour in the milk, water, and cornstarch, mixing well. Bring the heat down to low and let your cream sauce simmer for about five minutes, or until thickened. Add the Parmesan cheese and let it melt. Finally, add the chicken and pasta to the alfredo sauce and gently toss until the noodles and chicken are coated. Top it off with some fresh parsley and enjoy!
