Ingredients:

Chickpea Pasta: I made this chickpea pasta salad with GoGo Quinoa Chickpea Fusilli. This pasta is a healthier alternative to regular pasta, and gluten-free. It’s made with 100% organic chickpeas, brown rice, and quinoa flour and adds fiber and protein to this salad for an added boost!

Radicchio: Radicchio is commonly used in Italian cuisine. It’s a leafy vegetable that resembles lettuce or cabbage and adds a nice pop of color with its white-veined red leaves. Radicchio has a bitter and spicy taste that really adds a pop of flavor to more mellow, lettuce salads.
