I bought some pasta.
A friend suggested I try this pasta from Zenb that she had recently tried and loved, so I ordered some and it arrived yesterday. Per the company’s website, it is “made from 100% yellow peas with the same delicious taste and texture as traditional pasta.”
We love pasta, and it is one of the few remaining foods I can consistently eat without issue (so long as it’s gluten free.) We are fine with any of the store bought GF options, but I’m always happy to give new GF products a try.
I enjoy all the different sauces with pasta but tend to default to spaghetti, shrimp or chicken alfredo, or shrimp scampi, when I’m whipping up a pasta baked dinner. So, tonight I’ll branch out and make baked ziti instead, with the Penne pasta, and see how it goes.
I’ll have to do some research and see if I can find some new pasta recipes for the other two.

OK, now I’m hungry.
Hopefully you will like the pasta. Once I tried pasta made from chickpeas, and I just couldn’t eat it.
It was actually fantastic. It smelled a little odd after cooking (but then I’ve never liked the smell of peas)but it tasted fantastic.

Please tell me/us if it is any good; it is always good to hear about a good pasta, especially if it is better for the diet. 🙂
Between Spo and you, now I’m curious about these pasta noodles you can buy online.
Plant-based pasta? Isn’t most pasta plant-based? I am sure some degenerate has come up with Bacon Pasta, but I doubt it is common.
If you are discussing this pasta verbally with others, I recommend not announcing it is made of Yellow Pea.
Point taken. Most is made from flour and egg; this is made from 100% yellow peas.
