Creamy Alfredo Lentil Pasta
They recently opened a Target Express close to my house. It has been great for many reasons, especially since they have many gluten free, vegetarian and international foods. One of the items I came across was Lentil Pasta from Modern Table.
I knew it would be a good thing to try one night when I needed something filling and easy to make. My only complaint about the cooking process was that while boiling the pasta, it created a large amount of foam and was kind of smelly. I am fairly new to lentil pasta, so the foam might have been because I had the temperature too high or something. I will say the smell went away once I drained the water from the pasta.
I added shredded chicken to the pasta, and have to say that it was a delicious and easy meal. The sauce might have been very light and not really creamy, but it had great flavor and I could taste the seasonings. It was perfect as a quick a hearty meal after a long day.
Bonus points- the lentil pasta is high in protein! Yea!!!
Keep in mind though that one serving is over 400 calories!
Overall- I will certainly get this again and if we have a cold winter, it will become a staple in my pantry. Good flavoring, good source of protein and most of all– YUMMY!
