This is a very tasty pasta salad. It can be eaten for lunch or dinner as a main course. This food is very high in fiber, which will help with digestion. Also, it is a good source of complex carbohydrates that will give long lasting energy. The chickpeas provide a good protein package, even though it is an incomplete protein source. It also provides very good amounts of Vitamin C and Iron, which come from the variety of vegetables present in this dish. Finally, it only has 1.1 grams of saturated fat. This food should be balanced with fruit, which would supply a healthy source of sugar. Also, one could consume a healthy source of dairy, because this food does nothing to supply that.
