Organic Edamame and Mung Bean Fettuccini

Posted on the 28 January 2016 by Dave Nevue

As you probably know by now I love pasta, in all its shapes, but to avoid the carbs, and the overeating - I tend to overeat when I eat pasta, I do my best to stay away from it. Instead I love eating zoodles (noodles made of zucchini), but sometimes I don't have any zucchinis in the house, or I just feel like eating something else. So my second best alternative to "real" pasta is ready-made (you need to cook it of course) pasta made of beans instead of wheat. My favorite kind is a fettuccini shaped noodle made from edamame and mung bean. I use this brand which I can find at my local store, If you can't get them, or similar alternatives at your local store you can apparently order online (I don't know about shipping though). They are low in carbs and high in protein and fiber. So healthy! (you could think that I cooperate with this brand, but I am not! I was just so happy when I discovered the product. They might feel a bit odd in the beginning when you are not used to pasta tasting anything different than pasta (when you think of it, pasta really doesn't taste anything at all - it's the sauce you add to the pasta which makes all the difference). Anyhow, I use a lot of sauce when I eat my bean pasta - and so does my husband. Unfortunately I can't get my three year old to eat anything but the regular unhealthy pasta...

This is a very easy meal I put together the other night.
