BzzAgent sent me 2 boxes of Barilla ProteinPLUS pasta. I love that this pasta has added protein which is what is great to keep me full and energized.
- This pasta is loaded with 17 grams of protein in a 3.5 oz portion.
- Crafted with simple ingredients, like flaxseed, barley and oats
- Made with protein-rich chickpeas, lentils and egg whites
- Great source of fiber ( 7 grams) and ALA omega-3
I recently bought shrimp and received this pasta just in time to make something delicious!
Ingredients I used:
- Barilla ProteinPLUS spaghetti
- Shrimp ( 12 oz)
- Lemon ( lemon juice)
- Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper
- Red Pepper Flakes
- Parmesan Cheese
- Garlic Powder ( or minced garlic)
- Italian Seasonings
Add water to a big pot, add salt, bring to a boil. Add pasta to boiling water. Boil for 10 minutes. Drain.
Cut & steam broccoli. I drained the broccoli added olive oil, a little butter, & some seasonings in the pan and then placed the broccoli on top. Stirred until mixed.
Add about a tablespoon olive oil. Add shrimp. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, red pepper flakes ( be careful) , Italian seasonings, 2 tablespoons of butter. Once pink I added lemon juice from half a lemon. I also added some parmesan cheese. Turn off
( You can add more oil and butter to make more ‘sauce’ ) When pasta was done I added a couple of tablespoons of the pasta water to the pan as well.
You can add all of these ingredients to the same pan if you wish but I chose to keep them separate .
Put in a bowl , add as much or little of everything you want. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese! YUM!
This dish was delicious. My friend Shawn also had a bowl and loved the pasta ( I even got him to eat more broccoli than normal)
I too enjoyed this dish. The pasta, I think ,added a little flavor to this dish..maybe a little ‘nutty’ . It tasted great & was filling. I didn’t feel bloated after eating it or heavy. Definitely will add this to my diet when I have pasta. I’m a huge fan of the ingredients… lentils, chick peas, barley, egg whites.
