Go Gluten Free with Pasta Lensi - #Giveaway #Recipe



I was raised in a very Italian household, so of course pasta has always been a big part of my life.  I remember when I was little my grandmother would make the sauce and even sometimes the pasta from scratch. It would take her all day, but the end result was worth the time.  But that's not something I will ever have the time or patience to do. So the next best thing is Pasta Lensi. It's quick and easy, but still tastes as good as homemade. Plus, it's a  gluten free and cholesterol free option. Each one is made with a single ingredient you can feel good about putting into your body. 

I received a few boxes of Lensi Pasta  including the Red Lentil Fusilli, Black Bean Sedani, and Chickpea Casarecce. While these names sounded intimidating at first, they actually taste pretty good and have a much better texture than some other gluten free pastas I've tried. They also cooked to perfection. It wasn't too hard or too soft. It was just right, and it tasted wonderful too. This pasta is perfect for Alfredo or red sauce. It's great for a main course or a side dish.  My whole family enjoyed eating it and it's so easy, my daughter was even able to cook it by herself. One of the things we decided to make together was a quick and simple pasta salad. Here are the instructions. 

Ingredients

1 Cup Each of Chickpea Casarecce, Black Bean Sedani, and Red Lentil Fusilli Pasta
1/4 Cup Sharp Provolone Cubes
1/4 Cup Salami Cubes
1/4 Cup Mixed Black and Green Olives
1 Bottle Italian Dressing of Choice

Instructions:

1) Boil pasta to desired texture
2) While Pasta is boiling slice your black and green olives.
3) Strain Pasta and place in bowl
4) Add in cheese cubes, sausage cubes, and olives
5) Add Salad dressing to taste and stir



Gluten-free, vegan,  and low in sodium, these pastas are a awesome way to switch up all your recipes. I especially love how pretty the different colors made this dish look.  Pasta Lensi Legume Pastas are an authentic Italian pasta brand made in the Lombardy region of Italy. They strive to keep mealtime peace, while inspiring delicious new ideas for dinner. Pasta Lensi Legume’s single ingredient pastas introduce contemporary flavors like chickpea, black bean and red lentil, and pack extra protein and fiber to round out the nutrition in your dish.  To see all they have to offer, be sure to visit their website.  For some fun and unique recipe ideas, check out their extensive recipe collection.
