CHICKPEA PASTA with BOLGNAISE

Just like I love my Mung Bean pasta - I love my chickpea pasta! This is a greta alternative for those who find the texture/taste of Mung Bean pasta a little to out there! The San Remo chickpea pasta is a lot milder in flavour and has a texture much like traditional pasta! I was lucky enough to try the chickpea pasta when San Remo sent me a generous box of there new Pulse Pasta goodies to try!

What is it?

Pulses are legumes or seeds like lentils, beans and peas, the San Remo range specifically uses peas, lentils, chickpeas and borlotti beans to create both penne and spaghetti pasta types. Pulses are a nutritious food group, due to being packed with protein and fibre and are both gluten and wheat free.
