Buongiorno, my lovely readers! I’ve just got back from a week away in Sicily and enjoyed some really delicious pasta dishes while I was there. Pasta is one of those foods that people are often a bit scared of, so I am pleased to introduce you to the world’s non-scariest version – Really Healthy Pasta! I met these guys recently at a food show and was excited to see that they do pasta with a twist as each variety is made from a single ingredient. So let me introduce you to:
- Chickpea pasta
- Mung bean pasta
- Buckwheat pasta
- Red lentil pasta
- Black bean pasta
They are all organic and gluten-free, so perfect for those of you who have any sensitivity or intolerance.
Sometimes you just crave something quick, chunky and satisfying and this range for Really Healthy Pasta will fit the bill. The pasta cooks in just 5 minutes so there is no excuse not to make your own freshly cooked meal, no matter what time you get home. You can just throw a tasty tomato sauce on top and bam, you are ready to eat!
The ingredients used to make each box of Really Healthy Pasta means that they are high in protein, fibre and iron, so there will be none of that pasta bloat at the end of your bowl. Eating protein is a great way to feel full for hours, as carbs on their own can fill you up initially, but then you are looking in the fridge for something else a bit later on.
The texture is just the same as normal pasta and none of them has a strong taste, so you would never know how good it was for you if you don’t want to tell the rest of the family that you are trying something new. It also tastes lovely cold with veggies and a clean dressing, so if you think you don’t have time to make lunch for work tomorrow, I bet if you have a box of Really Healthy Pasta then you do!
I’ve tried all of these with my family and everyone loved them as they just thought I was giving them the usual kind of pasta but in different colours! This would also be a great way to get fussy eaters (children or adults) to try something new, as the children especially would love a mix of different colours in their bowl.
This tasty pasta is new to the market and is available online from goodhealthnaturally.com if you fancy trying a box. You can buy a single box or, they have a special offer on every flavour that is buy 3 boxes get one free – perfect if you have a pasta-loving family, or if you want to stock up on a quick and clean, high protein option!
If you try this let me know what you think either on my Facebook,Twitter or Instagram. I would love to know.
Ciao for now!
