Product Review: Banza Chickpea Pasta Mac and Cheese Deluxe Rich and Creamy Cheddar

If you are looking for a “healthier” mac and cheese (as if), try this one. The pasta is made of chickpea-flour pasta, so it has twice the protein of regular pasta and (18 grams/serving) and four times the fiber (8 grams/serving). But who cares if it doesn’t taste great? Fortunately, Banza Chickpea Pasta Mac and Cheese delivers. Although this gluten free macaroni and cheese has a denser texture than wheat or rice pasta, it totally works, and the sauce is very creamy and classically tasty. Plus, it’s a great way to sneak in a few more veggies on mac and cheese night.


INGREDIENTS: Chickpea pasta: chickpeas, tapioca, pea protein, xanthan gum; cheese: cheddar cheese (cultured pasteurized milk, cheese culture, salt, enzymes), skim milk, cream, water, whey, canola oil, sodium phosphate, salt, lactic acid, natural flavors, sodium alginate, organic fruit juice and organic annatto extract (color), xanthan gum.



OTHER HELPFUL INFO: To prepare this product, you will need 1/4 cup milk.
