Are you always looking for a filling and flavorful dish that not a major carbohydrate overload? I think that this is that dish. Black Bean Rotini Pasta is a pasta that has extra protein from the black beans, not all the carbs that you will find in standard flour based pasta. One serving contains 14 grams of protein and 15 grams of fiber! That is so healthy, it almost seems like it couldn’t possibly be pasta. I added vegetables, artichokes, peppers, kale and leeks and a basic red sauce to give it some yummy and topped with Trader Joe’s vegan mozzarella cheese. Seriously, ready in less than 30 minutes, it was better than I could have imagined. Vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
