Yes, that pasta salad above is made with Modern Table’s Lentil Rotini Pasta below.

Which means that not only is it naturally gluten free and high in fiber but it is also packed with protein- 14 grams to be exact! 

Another great thing about the fact that this pasta is made out of beans is that it has nutrients like iron, zinc and folate that typical pasta doesn’t.  Oh and it’s ready in less that 10 minutes and doesn’t require any rinsing.  Woohoo!

Just like regular pasta, the possibilities are endless when it comes to recipes to make.  Pair it with some sauce, throw some cheese on it or ya know, make it into a Mexican pasta salad! 😉

I know, I know.  I can’t have all the goodness in this delicious salad.  The avocado and tomato are a total no-no with histamine intolerance but that doesn’t mean that my family can’t enjoy it! 

I actually whipped this up for a Father’s Day cookout and I am happy to report that it was a HUGE hit!
