Green Chile Casarecce & Pasta Lensi Giveaway!

Green Chile Casarecce & Pasta Lensi Giveaway!

We all love pasta, but we also know we shouldn’t eat too much of the bleached white stuff… which is where Pasta Lensi comes in! They’ve created single ingredient pasta, using just chickpeas, black beans, or red lentils. That’s all! Just one ingredient! 

Green Chile Casarecce & Pasta Lensi Giveaway!

They currently offer three varieties, all of which are vegan:

  • Chickpea Casarecce made with flour ground from chickpeas and reflects the flavor and sandy color of its single ingredient. It pairs well with fresh, chunky sauces, and provides 22 grams of protein and 12 grams of fiber per 3.5 oz serving. It is also gluten free, vegan, low fat, low in sodium, cholesterol free, and a good source of potassium and iron.
  • Black Bean Sedani made with flour ground from black beans and has a dark, rich color. It makes an excellent complement to Latin American flavors, and provides 21 grams of protein and 17 grams of fiber per 3.5 oz serving. It is also gluten free, vegan, low fat, low in sodium, cholesterol free, and a good source of potassium and iron per serving.
  • Red Lentil Fusilli made from ground red lentils and has a rich red hue that brings brightness to any dish. It catches sauce between its curls and provides 26 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per 3.5 oz serving. It is also gluten free, vegan, low fat, low in sodium, cholesterol free, and a good source of potassium and iron.

I had a jar of vegan green chile that I had been waiting to use, and the chickpea casarecce seemed like the perfect choice. So I cooked the pasta per package instructions and just added in the green chile, and boom- lunch was served!

I’m not strictly gluten free (not even close), but I do buy gf pasta from time to time, and this is one of the best that I’ve tried. It stayed firm, and it had a great texture. I also love that there’s only one ingredient- I don’t need to worry about the crazy chemicals and additives I can’t pronounce!
