Pulse Pasta - Alfredo Style!

Pulse pastas are all the rage right now, and I totally get why! Explore Cuisine has an amazing Organic Green Lentil pasta that I made this dish with. I could not believe this when I read the nutrition facts label…the pasta has 13g of protein per serving! It is a great gluten free option, low in saturated fat and packed with nutrients. And it honestly has the same regular pasta texture! It pairs perfectly with this homemade Alfredo sauce that I made (but let’s be real what doesn’t taste yummy with Alfredo sauce) – all in all it is a great vegetarian friendly pasta!
