A while ago we found a great line of bean pastas that are gluten-free, low carb, high protein and full of flavour. They have a nice selection of pasta types and bean varieties. The Adzuki Bean pasta is a lovely spaghetinni with only 11g net carbs, 20g protein and no cholesterol. Regular pasta is 33.4g net carbs and 6.7g protein so you can still get your pasta fix without all the carbs.

The pasta can be bought from your local grocery store in the gluten-free isle or online at http://www.explore-asian.com/adzukibeanpasta#.VXmO0UajBCU

The beauty of this salad is its simplicity and colour. The recipe makes a huge batch and our family of 4 we were well fed and I still have lunch for today.

There are 11.4g net carbs 23.8g protein and 12 Weight Watchers points per serving.
