Healthy One-Pot Enchilada Pasta


INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. If you plan on popping this bad boy in the oven to melt the cheese, use an oven-safe pot/pan and pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Prefer to stir the cheese into the pasta? Skip ze oven.
  2. First combine your enchilada sauce and refried beans and whisk together to mix well. This unsuspecting combo amps up the flavor, adds luscious thickness, and boosts the protein/fiber content of your zest red enchilada sauce.
  3. In a large skillet over high heat, add half of the bean-spiked enchilada sauce, crushed tomatoes, vegetable broth, and chickapea pasta.
  4. Bring to a boil, then add corn and black beans (as much as you'd like!) and season with chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.
  5. Cover and reduce heat to low/simmer, allowing the pasta approx. 20 minutes to cook or until your perfect level of al-dente. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  6. Once ready, add any additional enchilada sauce to taste. I like to save some to pour over my pasta when reheating leftovers, as the pasta tends to soak up some of the sauce in the fridge (hello flavor infusion!)
  7. Add your cheese. You can swirl it into the pasta or sprinkle on top and use an oven mit to transfer pot to oven, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until hot and melty! 
  8. Top with all your favorite toppings and enjoy! This delish dish tastes great the first day and equally awesome the next.
