Barilla has launched a line of one-ingredient legume pastas. Made with just chickpeas or red lentils, the brand created a pasta with a unique taste and "al dente" texture, along with the nutrition benefits of legumes – providing a good source of plant-based protein and excellent source of fiber.
"At Barilla, we only have one way of doing business: 'Good for You, Good for the Planet' (GYGP). This means constantly innovating and improving our products to provide people with high-quality foods that are healthy, sourced from responsible supply chains, and inspired by the Italian lifestyle and Mediterranean Diet," said Jean-Pierre Comte, president of Barilla Americas.
The latest offering from Barilla is available in four varieties featuring just one ingredient: Red Lentil Rotini, Red Lentil Penne, Chickpea Rotini and Chickpea Casarecce — all of which are certified gluten free and Non-GMO Project Verified.
The legume pastas are packed in 8.8-ounce cartons with a clear window to see the product inside. A big and bold noodle is portrayed on the front of pack. New Barilla legume pastas can be found at Amazon and select retailers nationwide.
