Barilla goes the legume pasta route

Barilla’s pasta is going the plant-based way.

The Northbrook, Ill.-based company announced the launch of its new one-ingredient legume pasta line, which is made with just chickpeas or red lentils.

“At Barilla, we only have one way of doing business: 'Good for You, Good for the Planet,' or GYGP. This means constantly innovating and improving our products to provide people with high-quality foods that are healthy, sourced from responsible supply chains, and inspired by the Italian lifestyle and Mediterranean Diet,” Jean-Pierre Comte, president of Barilla Americas, said. “We're very proud of this innovation because it was not only inspired by the needs and wants of our consumers, but also our greater GYGP mission.”

Available in four varieties — red lentil rotini, red lentil penne, chickpea rotini and chickpea casarecce — each of the new launches is certified gluten-free and Non-GMO Project Verified, the company said.

Each of the four new pastas retails for $2.99 each and can be found on Amazon or at select retailers nationwide. Further information on the line can be found on the company's website.
