This super quick Lemon Asparagus Pasta with Peas and Tomatoes is on top of our list for delicious and hassle-free weeknight meals.

It’s what I call, filled with flavors, easy to make and I usually prep a big batch and keep in the fridge

Whether its a simple tossed spaghetti or with added meatballs or just a quick shrimp pasta, whatever be it, carbs definitely helps calm those stressed nerves and hungry tummy.

But what if you want to have pasta and also be low-carb ? Well, I recently found Glutenfree Chickpea past and seriously, I’ve not looked back since then!
