Why You’ll Love It

Pasta is wonderfully filling—at first. But, those empty calories won't keep you full for long, which means you'll be hungry shortly after eating it. Banza Penne Chickpea Pasta is different, though, made with chickpeas instead of traditional starches. This "secret superfood" offers four times the fiber, double the protein, and nearly half the carbohydrates of traditional pasta, which will keep you satisfied and feeling good after a hearty meal. This pasta contains 90 percent non-GMO, naturally gluten-free chickpeas, along with pea protein, tapioca flour, and xanthan gum (which stands in for eggs as a binding agent). Unlike some other gluten-free pastas that fall apart if cooked a little too long, Banza Penne Chickpea Pasta softens while still holding its form. It's perfect as a stand-in for any penne recipe, from a simple plate of marinara and meatballs to a colorful primavera packed with fresh vegetables.

Reviews For Penne Chickpeas Pasta

Based on 8 Reviews


Filling hearty smooth texture.

- Shannon

Great substitute pasta

Of substitutes for regular pasta, this brand's chickpea pasta has been my favorite. Good texture, good flavor, very satisfied.

- Hope

Just ordered more!

We are not GF, but we are vegan and always looking for more protein. I thought we'd give these a try, since the nutritional information is impressive. We were very pleasantly surprised! I didn't tell my husband they weren't wheat, and he did not notice. Also, this was a lot more filling than regular pasta. Be advised though, while boiling, the water gets a kind of aquafaba foam on it, and you need to rinse well with hot water to keep them from being a little slippery.

This product is kind of heavy, but that's a good thing for pasta. Doesn't take much to feel fullZ Packs a better nutritional punch than most pastas. Slightly cheaper than my local grocery.

- Karen

Will pass the pickiest eaters.

We've all had the substitute that tastes like cardboard and this is not it. This tastes 97% like your average white flour pasta and waaay better than your usual gritty whole grain pasta. And it passed the anti-healthly-food-husband test without notice. It didn't get mushy for leftovers either.

- Christine Hawkins

Great taste and consistency!

I bought this to up our bean consumption and am very happy. I have tried to use a store brand black bean pasta in the past, but found the consistency almost unacceptable. This is MUCH better, and leftovers store well in the fridge. I find the pasta to be a bit firmer than traditional noodles (especially gluten-free), but I like the firmer texture. And the taste is really rich and hearty.

- Maria

Great pasta

I was not sure if we would like this or not. We saw on a tv show that this tastes as good as regular pasta and you can't tell the difference. Well, my picky hubby and I both love this. We just ordered more and even got some for his family to try. You need to try this....

- Carey

Excellent for Gluten Free!!!

Great texture and flavor.
