    I don’t have a menu, but I’m interested to hear your thoughts on Banza pasta!

    • I liked it! I’m going to write about it in my next show & tell post…but will fill you in now! it’s kind of smelled funny and when I took a bite alone, it definitely has a taste to it that is different than pasta. however when I added the sauce and ate it for dinner, it tasted great. definitely a good alternative and filled with great nutrients! will use again for sure 🙂

  10. Sitting down to plan and so happy to have these menus to inspire me. thank you everyone!
