Healthy Pumpkin Mac & Cheese


  • 1 cup of Chickpea Pasta (Banza)

  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened Pumpkin Puree

  • 1 tbsp of Olive Oil

  • 1 tsp of minced Garlic

  • Salt & Pepper to Taste

  • Grass-fed Irish Natural Sharp Cheddar (Truly Grassfed)


1) Cook the chickpea pasta until it’s al dente.

2) While the pasta is cooking, heat up 1 tbsp of olive oil with the minced garlic in a separate sauce pan.

3) Once the pasta is ready, drain (but save some pasta water!) and place the drained pasta in the other sauce pan with the garlic. Stir for a bit so the pasta absorbs the flavor.

4) Next, add the pumpkin puree, the chopped cheese (i chopped it in cubes), and add a little bit of the pasta water with salt & pepper. Keep stirring on low heat until all of the ingredients melt together.

5) Serve, add some more grated cheese on top and enjoy!
