Organic Red Lentil Penne Pasta:
The discovery of this pasta, made by Tolerant Foods was really exciting for me. Since I started the diet two and a half years ago, the closest I had come to pasta was spaghetti squash! They have a couple of different pasta shapes, including rotini, fettuccine, and penne, and they also have another version made from black beans! I like the red lentil one best because it has a color that is similar to real pasta, and it absorbs flavors really well!
How we like to cook it: Soak the pasta for a minimum of five hours (to get rid of all the extra starches), boil a pot of water, drop the pasta in the boiling water, then strain it after a few seconds (otherwise the pasta gets really soggy).
