Thanks to Banza for sending product for me to create this recipe. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own! This post contains affiliate links.

I decided it was mandatory to share this recipe because I’ve been making it SO much. Like once a week we’ve got this Quick & Healthy Ranch Pasta Salad on the menu, for reals. My friends at Banza were kind enough to send me a case of their AMAZING chickpea pasta and it’s been saving my behind on weeknights ALL OF THE TIME, lately. If you haven’t tried Banza, go ahead and check it out. You can order online, or it’s in most grocery stores. It’s packed with protein and fiber and it honest to goodness has a fantastic flavor and texture. Take it from someone who doesn’t even love whole wheat pasta, it’s good.

Anyway, I throw this pasta together in about a half an hour and I make sure to load it with veggies to get everything we need in one meal. You can certainly make this a “clean out the fridge” pasta salad and just use what veggies you have on hand, but we love broccoli and tomato. Here’s to summer weeknights spent on the porch and not in the kitchen!

Let’s get to it!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED (increments below in the printout):

Chickpea pasta – try Banza here!

Ranch dressing of your choice – but I use Primal Kitchen Avocado Ranch

Ham – precooked deli meat (I like to go for all natural & organic with no sugar added)

Tomato

Broccoli

5 Ingredient Paleo Ranch Chickpea Pasta Salad WHAT YOU’LL DO:

Boil your pasta water and cook according to the package directions. Drain and set aside. Cut your broccoli pieces into small florets and set aside with the tomatoes. Once the pasta has been cooked and been removed, add some oil to the stock pot and heat over medium heat.

Add the broccoli and saute for about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes for about 2 minutes just to soften them, and remove from the heat. Add in the pasta, ham, and ranch to the pot, stir and serve warm, or chill in the fridge and serve cold!
