In case you’re unfamiliar, Banza makes pasta from 90% chickpeas. It comes in all shapes and sizes and works great as a healthier substitute for traditional wheat pasta. Here’s a handful of reasons their pasta has become a go-to ingredient in my recipes:
- lower carb, higher protein
- gluten free
- great taste and texture
- available in most grocery stores or easily ordered online
If you have any additional questions about Banza pasta, I bet it’s covered in their FAQ.
