Protein pasta is easily one of the simplest swaps you can make to increase your daily protein intake. Whereas a regular serving of wheat pasta is pretty low in protein (around 7 grams), protein pasta is typically at least double (or even triple!) that amount. In addition to being high in protein, they also taste great and some have as little as one ingredient, making it super natural and healthy! Here are some of the best protein pastas out there!

Banza Chickpea Pasta

Banza has seen its spike in popularity for a reason. It seems like Banza pasta is everywhere! Banza is one of the first chickpea pastas on the market that really brought attention to the protein pasta possibilities. It is a delicious alternative to regular wheat pasta.

The Only Bean Edamame Fettuccine

The Only Bean Edamame Fettuccine is great because it only has one ingredient–edamame beans! This makes it a really clean addition to your meal, as you know exactly what you’re eating. It also has some of the highest protein percentages out there. 

Barilla Red Lentil Pasta

Barilla Red Lentil Pasta is another great and unique take on protein pasta. Lentils are a great vegan protein source, and to create pasta out of it is genius!
