Say hello to a new breed of healthy pasta

Healthy pasta recipe

Babes, I'm not talking zucchini noodles. Or any other magically spiralized vegetable. I'm talking real, al-dente, chewy, dense, satiating pasta, that you don't need to feel any food guilt over. It's also gluten-free, and has a Five Star Health Rating.

A new breed of pasta has hit Aussie shelves, that contains 65% more protein and 25% less carbs than your usual pasta!

Say hello to PULSE PASTA!!!

San Remo Pulse Pasta is made using flour from pulses including: peas, lentils, chickpeas and borlotti beans instead of wheat to boost the protein content and other nutritional benefits.

Super handy for a nourishing and simple mid-week meal.

Check out the recipe video below for a delish seafood dish. You can swap mussels for cooked prawns, hard tofu, tempeh, leftover poached chicken - anything your heart desires!


The range is now available in Woolworths and all independent supermarkets nationally (RRP $3.99). It takes under 10 minutes to cook, so why not grab a pack and whip up your fave pasta dish with all the nutrition of pulses? SAH yum guys, seriously.

Why I love it

  • Gluten Free - suitable for coeliac or gluten intolerance
  • 65% more Protein than regular San Remo pasta
  • 25% less Carbs than regular San Remo pasta
  • 4 times more Fibre than regular San Remo pasta
  • Five Star Health Rating

For when your spiralizer needs a rest. Get on it.
