A serving of regular pasta has 40 grams of carbohydrates, but NutriNoodle Organic Black Bean Protein Spaghetti has only 19 grams of total carbs, including 9 grams of net carbs. NutriNoodle Organic Black Bean Protein Spaghetti is not just lower in carbohydrates than regular pasta. It is also higher in protein and fiber, with about 3 times the amount of each. In fact, with so much of these nutrients, it almost seems designed to keep you full, and that is important when you are following a weight loss diet. 

While many “diet” foods are made from artificial ingredients or seem overly processed, NutriNoodle Organic Black Bean Protein Spaghetti are made from simple ingredients: nothing but black soybeans and water. Plus, they are organic, so you can feel good about what you are putting in your body. 

All these benefits do not mean that NutriNoodle Organic Black Bean Protein Spaghetti is complicated to cook! Just boil some water and add the dry pasta. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, drain the water, and serve it or use the pasta in your favorite recipe. 

Black Bean Pasta with Garlic-Infused Olive Oil is a creamy, delightful recipe that is unbelievably simple to prepare. Basically, you just mix the ingredients together and serve them! This recipe calls for yellow or red bell peppers, but you can use other vegetables, such as onions, sliced in rings, broccoli florets, or julienned carrots. Any vegetable you add adds antioxidants and fiber without adding many carbs.

You can always try the recipe with different combinations of herbs, such as rosemary or thyme, and you can add an extra serving of protein by cooking shrimp or chicken in the garlic-infused olive oil before proceeding with the recipe.

Enjoy this scrumptious recipe!
