Okay, I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not, but we live in a world where chickpea pasta exists and it is delicious. I first found out about Banza online when I was researching alternatives to regular and whole wheat pasta (Why? Because I hate myself probably?) and it came down to me trying chickpea pasta as well as soba noodles as a substitute for pasta. (Quick tip: the texture is a little too slimy for anyone to think soba & regular noodles are interchangeable, but just my opinion.)
I found Banza at Whole Foods (because of course) and I'd love to say that I'll never go back to regular pasta, but I definitely will because the rest of the human race will never exclusively get on board with feeding me chickpea, unfortunately. Long story short, this pasta is amazing. Tastes exactly like other pasta, maybe better? If you're making something sauce-heavy, the shells really hold on to the sauce and make it luxurious as hell. You have to try it. It comes in spaghetti, linguine and little shells - I've tried them all, the shells are the best. I've never seen them in stock, but they also have penne, rotini and elbows.
Note: this isn't even a sponsored post. God, I wish it was. Then they'd send me so much f-ing pasta, I'd be set for life.
