    Calling All Diabetics, Celiacs, And Carb Watchers: This Pasta Is The Truth

    Can't stop/won't stop talking about Banza.

    Is there anything more comforting than a heaping plate of pasta on a cold winter's night? I submit there is not.

    I had pretty much sent pasta to the "special occasions" corner of my eating life when I got my hands on a box of Banza, chickpea-based pasta that has about half the net carbs of regular pasta. It's also gluten free!

    The only differences I noticed between Banza and ordinary pasta were a hint of chickpeas (though just in the undressed pasta), and a slight brittleness when I refrigerated and reheated it (which only made it easier to house the leftovers).

    It bears repeating: Banza is vegan and gluten free, and it has roughly twice the protein, three times the fiber, and half the net carbs of regular pasta.

    And here's a thing I had forgotten about pasta: It is the base of a lot of super-easy and delicious recipes!

    So whether you're diabetic, gluten free, or just an unafflicted pasta lover who's trying to cut back on carbs: You're welcome.

    Get a pack of six boxes from Amazon for $17.70+ or a single box from Jet for $4.06+.
