It’s safe to say healthy pasta substitutes have taken over these past few years. The media is more focused than ever on overall health and fitness causing anyone who picks up a magazine or watches television to avoid carbs like the plague.
Instead of cutting out pasta altogether though, zoodles (zucchini noodles) and spaghetti squash have become the new go-to meals, giving people the pasta-like taste they desire without the guilt.
While there’s no denying how yummie a good bowl of spaghetti squash is though, it’s nothing compared to a hearty bowl of noodles and only satisfies one’s cravings for so long.
Thankfully though, there’s a new kind of healthy noodle in town that is bound to kick spaghetti squash to the curb.
Premium Italian pasta maker, Pasta Lensi, recently launched their new line of Legume Pastas, creating an excited frenzy throughout America’s increasingly large population of healthy eaters.
Daniel Galo, Pasta Lensi’s Brand Manager explained, “Legumes are the cornerstone of many dishes around the globe. That’s mainly because of their nutritional benefits, including their high levels of protein and fiber, and the fact that they’re vegan and naturally gluten free.
“By combining our Italian pasta heritage with the simplicity of one single ingredient, we can offer new items like this to consumers looking for a way to enjoy pasta with added nutritional benefits,” Galo added.
Real noodles and nutritional benefits, what’s not to like?
This delicious pasta comes in four varieties: Black Bean Sedani, Chickpea Casarecce, Red Lentil Fusilli and Yellow Lentil Penne Rigate and can be purchased nationwide.
Now that there are healthy pasta alternatives, can someone please create healthy alternatives to pizza… and tacos… and vodka…?
