Barilla's newest line introduces a legume-based pasta collection that spotlights single-ingredient products made with either chickpeas or red lentils.
These new legume pastas are offered in varieties such as Red Lentil Rotini, Red Lentil Penne, Chickpea Rotini and Chickpea Casarecce, all of which are packed with plant-based protein and fiber. All of these products are certified gluten-free, Non-GMO Project verified and deliver the quality and texture that consumers have come to expect from the pasta brand.
Different kinds of legume-based pastas boast different colors, tastes, textures and nutrient values thanks to the bean or lentil variety it is created with. When it comes to cooking these dry pasta products, Barilla describes these one-ingredient legume pastas as having "a deliciously unique taste and 'al dente' texture."
