I saw a new product at the natural health grocery store the other day and couldn’t wait to try it: Tolerant Foods’ Organic Red Lentil Rotini.
Since Non-GMO organic red lentils are the sole ingredient, this pasta is grain-free as well as wheat-free.
Last night I cooked the pasta in boiling water for 8-10 minutes, then drained and served topped with marinara sauce and sautéed zucchini rounds and garbanzo beans. The pasta was deliciously al dente, held its shape well, and was accepted easily by my kids and even my husband, who has been known to turn up his nose at pure rice pasta.
If you’re good with lentils, you should give it a try. It will definitely become a staple at our house.
