Kale and Zucchini Baked Ziti

Kale Zucchini Baked Ziti

Can you believe Spring is here already?! What happened to Winter? It came and went, and all of the snow is already melting. I am still enjoying warm home-cooked meals, like this kale and zucchini baked ziti. The zucchini is pre-cooked with onions and garlic in a skillet, and then tossed with organic chickpea penne pasta and sauce. My favorite part is the melted cheese on top, yum! 

I got to try this delicious chickpea pasta in my Degustabox this month. You may have seen me mention it on here before, but just in case you aren’t familiar: Degustabox is a monthly surprise subscription food box that contains 10-15 food products delivered right to your door. Shipping is always free. I love getting to try new products I have never seen at the grocery store before, like this chickpea pasta. I am discovering new favorites all of the time.

Get your first Degustabox filled with 10-15 full-sized goodies for only $9.99 – just for MSFK readers 😉

Are you bummed Winter is over? Or are you still enjoying all of the nice things that come with it like hot cocoa, soups and warm pasta dishes?
