Pasta may hit the top of my list as far as comfort foods go. Potatoes are a close second. But, yeah, I think pasta is up there. It's one of those meals that almost everyone agrees on. Almost. My son has a friend who cannot handle pasta. I won't go into details, but let's just say I feel awful he can't enjoy a big bowl of noodles. I digress.
To all of us who do enjoy noodles, I found one that I am quickly falling for. Not only is it comforting, but also has a lot of healthy qualities! No shade intended on our good, comforting traditional pasta, but isn't it nice when you can have the best of both worlds? Purefit sent me their new protein pasta in 3 varieties - Edamame, Soybean, & Black Bean.
There are a lot of things to love right here. And when pasta has this many good qualities, pasta night can fill my menu plan on more than one occasion. Grab a box of pasta from your own pantry and see how it compares!
- one single ingredient
- 100% organic
- all three pastas have at least 24g of protein per serving
- the suggested serving size is huge!
- cooks super quick - 3 minutes and the noodles hold up
- fiber checks in at around 40% of suggested daily values
- & potassium is 30% of your DV (byeee bananas)
- all 3 varieties have mild flavors and can be combined with anything you like!
Legume pasta has a different consistency than your usual wheat pastas. These are thin and almost stringy. My preferred way to serve is either in a stir fry bowl, as a side mixed with my own sauce, or soup. They're also quite good with just a sprinkle of your favorite seasoning. I recommend the everything bagel seasoning!
I still have other wheat and bean pastas in my pantry (because variety is great!), but I am a big fan of having such a healthy version on hand too. This brand would be exceptional for anyone looking for an easy and convenient way to increase their protein intake. With no added ingredients or animal products, there's no cholesterol or added fats.
Did I mention the portion sizes are huge?! I love to eat, so this really hit the spot sitting down on the sofa to a giant, steamy bowl of noodles!
