Pasta Agile

Jazzing up a classic dish loved by many by using ZENB Pasta Agile to save time. The time saved meant I could add lots of other flavours for a delicious twist on the staple comfort food. Made from 100% yellow peas with just a two-minute cooking time, and no pre-boil necessary. This recipe is vegan, gluten-free and healthier than a regular mac & cheese AND so much more exciting!
