Every now and then I get really excited about a new food I’ve found. This one is especially exciting because it’s a pasta that is made out of legumes AND only legumes!! 1 ingredient to be exact.

It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, wheat-free, organic, non-GMO PASTA.

We have made several dishes with this pasta and I can confidently say that you will love it. The consistency is better than brown rice pasta, quinoa pasta (which, don’t buy, it’s mostly corn), or any other non-wheat pasta out there. And it tastes really good to boot.

I don’t have an exact recipe to share with you because I think you can figure this one out ;-) Make the pasta, add veggies, some tomato sauce and you are set! Mix it up by using an olive oil dressing instead of tomato sauce. Make it cold or hot.

It is packed with protein (21-22grams) and fiber. Add a healthy fat and you have yourself a well-balanced, low-glycemic meal.

I found it at Whole Foods Market, but here is the website with more types and where to buy -> http://www.tolerantfoods.com/ (no, I am not an affiliate, just really excited to share this!)

(disclaimer: it’s a bit pricey as far as pastas go. but to be quite honest, it’s worth it. go-to easy meal that is packed with protein and healthy? yes, please! AND it’s still less expensive than taking the fam out to dinner. and did I mention healthier???)

Enjoy!
