One Pot Chicken Sausage Pasta
One-pot dishes are my all-time favorite. They are usually a bit quicker, and make for easy cleanup! This is a new family favorite. We choose chickpea-based pasta because it offers more fiber and protein than regular pasta. When you are living with type 2 diabetes, you may choose to skip pasta altogether. Each person is different and should follow the diet that works best for his or her lifestyle. But if you do want to try some pasta, this option is delicious! You can also cut the serving size to lower the carbohydrate intake.
