This 5 Ingredient Baked Ziti with Spinach and Chickpeas is perfect for an easy vegetarian weeknight dinner! It’s loaded with lots of spinach and chickpeas to balance out the cheese!
During my first trimester there wasn’t a lot of foods that I enjoyed eating but baked cheesy pasta was one of them! I think I’ve made this 5 Ingredient Baked Ziti with Spinach and Chickpeas so many times this summer. It was defiantly worth me turning on the oven for 🙂
I’ve made baked cheesy pastas before but never really made baked ziti until recently. Not that it’s so different from regular pastas but there’s something about baked ziti that’s delicious!
To this baked ziti recipe I added some spinach to help balance out the cheese and also some chickpeas to add even extra protein. These days chickpeas are my go-to protein for pastas, salads and soups. They have a mild flavor, lots of protein and go really well with pretty much anything!
I’m all about the 5 ingredient dinners these days! Sometimes I get a little carried away and before I know it I’ve spend almost $30 on ingredients for one dinner. While I love using lots of ingredients I also love the challenge of making a delicious meal with only a few.
I hope you guys love 5 ingredient dinners as much as I do because I have a roundup of a bunch coming on Thursday!
This 5 Ingredient Baked Ziti with Spinach and Chickpeas is one of my favorite vegetarian dinner recipes lately! You can easily veganize it by omitting the cheese or using vegan cheese instead. I hope you all enjoy this dinner as much as I do!Print
