Sun-Dried Tomato Bean Pasta

dinner inspired meals lunch Jul 25, 2022

I don’t know about you, but regular pasta tends to send my blood sugar through the roof! How do I know? Because I get hungry an hour or so after eating it. This means it caused my blood sugar to initially spike and then plummet, triggering what I call “rebound hunger.”


Other foods that can have this effect are:

  • White potatoes
  • White rice
  • Sugary cereals and other sweets (cake, cookies, candy)
  • Sugar-sweetened beverages (including those fancy, overpriced coffee drinks)
  • Pretzels
  • Crackers


If you find yourself shying away from pasta for the same reason, or if you are simply trying to improve the overall quality of your food choices, I think you'll really like this recipe! It was created by my friend Carla and uses Liviva Organic Edamame Fettuccine, a high protein, high fiber, low glycemic solution to regular wheat-based pasta with a mere two ingredients: organic edamame and water.


One serving of this pasta offers 22 grams of protein (as much as one 3-ounce chicken breast) and 17 grams of fiber. Pretty impressive! 🙌


Pair it with a nice leafy green salad and you've got a real nutrition powerhouse meal on your hands.
