Before spring starts to show, I wanted to share one last cozy
pasta meal. This lentil rotini pasta features easy garlicky kale, a
no-cook goat cheese sauce, and Barilla Red Lentil Rotini. The
spirals in the rotini are perfect for soaking up that
All the Greens
When it comes to greens, I’m constantly swapping different
ones in and out of recipes. One of the reasons I love recipes like
this is because it’s forgiving. Happen to have chard or collards
on hand? Those would work just as well.
I’ve also been known to make a similar pasta and add roasted
cauliflower, broccoli, and/or sweet potatoes as a replacement or in
addition to the greens.
Goat Cheese: love it or leave it
I love goat cheese and I’m not shy about my love. However, I
know that it’s not everyone’s favorite cheese. This pasta can
work well with any softer-type cheese. Cream cheese or farmers
cheese would work as well.
Never fear, vegan friends. You can easily make this vegan. I
like to use my favorite cashew cream or sunflower cream with a
little bit of onion powder, garlic powder, and nutritional yeast in
place of the goat cheese sauce.
Barilla’s Red Lentil Rotini Pasta
When I was writing my cookbook on grinding flour, one of the
biggest surprises came when working with red lentil flour. It’s
such a good, protein-solid flour. Because of this, I’m not
surprised to see this great, one-ingredient Red Lentil Rotini from
Barilla. You can find this and all the other varieties of the new
Barilla legume pastas on Amazon.
