Barilla created two new pasta products that I am confident you will love! Give a big welcome to Barilla Chickpea Pasta and Barilla Red Lentil Pasta. 🙂
I was excited to be asked to develop 2 simple recipes using the new Barilla Chickpea Pasta, and I can't wait for you to see them! If you missed my Mediterranean Pasta Dish, be sure to check it out (it's quick and amazing).
Barilla's Chickpea Pasta is “Foodie-Approved” high-quality nutrition, made from only 1 ingredient, and has a superior taste/texture!
I have been really impressed with both the quality and the texture. That says a lot because I'm very texture-driven!
Seriously, check out Barilla Chickpea Pasta! (Purchase here on Amazon – and read other reviews – for an easy way to add healthier options to your diet –and leave a review with your thoughts on the pasta!)
- has a great texture – very similar to traditional pasta
- cooks like traditional pasta (mine was perfect at 8 minutes)
- has a great taste – similar to traditional pasta, but just the teensiest bit earthy when comparing side to side. However, for anyone who might feel turned off by that, I didn't notice the difference at all once I made my pasta dishes.
- contains only ONE ingredient!
- is a healthy pasta alternative
Barilla's Chickpea Pasta Has Many Benefits
But that's not all! In addition to tasting great and having a fabulous texture, Barilla's Chickpea Pasta provides lots of other benefits:
- Plant-Based Protein
- Non-GMO certified
Delicious Greek Side Dishes
The first side dish I made was a Mediterranean Pesto Pasta. Yum!
The second side dish I developed is a deliciously light and flavorful Greek Pasta Side Dish. Simple, classic Greek ingredients make this side dish, a simple Greek sauce made from Extra Virgin Olive Oil brings it all together.
Serve warm with my Greek Chicken, Falafel, or any other Mediterranean-type dish! This pasta dish makes the perfect side dish – especially in the summer when you want lighter meals.
Give these recipes a try, and don't forget to include Barilla's Chickpea Pasta when you make them!
