Kids and adults alike will love this pizza-inspired pasta salad packed with protein, whole grains, fresh mozzarella and bell peppers.
Want to know the best thing since sliced bread? Pizza hummus! Yes, my friends, Sabra has done it again… they turned your beloved pizza into a healthy, protein-packed snack that you can feel good about eating!
You already know my boys are pretty much obsessed with hummus (they eat it with a spoon – who needs pita chips?) but I couldn’t wait to let them dig into this fun new flavor. It tastes like your favorite spaghetti sauce – think oregano, garlic and basil.
In honor of back-to-school, I created a 5-ingredient pizza pasta salad packed with veggies and tiny mozzarella balls for tiny hands. As always, I used whole wheat pasta because it adds an extra boost of protein and fiber. This powerful one-two punch of protein and fiber takes longer to digest and doesn’t cause a mid-afternoon sugar crash.
What are your favorite lunches for back to school? This is our first year sending our oldest to preschool and while he doesn’t need to pack a lunch yet, I want to be sure to give him the best fuel possible.
I know I’m going to blink and he’ll be heading off to high school. Hold me.
Your fork is waiting.
- 8 ounces short-cut whole wheat pasta cooked according to package directions (i.e. fusilli,penne, etc.)
- 4 ounces mozzarella bocconcini
- 2 Sabra Pizza Hummus Singles or hummus flavor of choice
- 1/2 cup red bell peppers diced
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes halved
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and toss until pasta is evenly coated with the hummus.
Serve warm, room temperature or chilled.
Can be stored in a refrigerated air-tight container for up to five days.
