I literally bought this ZENB pasta after seeing an ad for it on Instagram. My first impulse was to scorn the idea of pea-based pasta, but then I thought I should at least taste it since I do not eat gluten. I usually buy rice-based pasta and it’s fine, but it’s good to have options.
This pasta is high in protein because it is made from peas. I was very pleasantly surprised by how good it tastes! My picky adult sons even said they liked it better than regular gluten free pasta and I have to agree. It has more flavor, but it does NOT taste like peas.
They use yellow peas so the color is the same as regular pasta. It cooks fast, too.
A couple of negatives: it’s more expensive than regular pasta and rice-based pasta, and it is pretty sticky once cooked. Also be aware that the box is only 8 ounces and that doesn’t make very much if you are used to feeding a big family like I am. The cost would be prohibitive for me to make enough for as much pasta as my family usually eats. Today we enjoyed it as a side dish with barbecue. However, if price is not an issue for you, give it a try! It is delicious.
