Pasta with Broccoli

Last night I spoke with Sean — one of the coolest people I know — and he mentioned that he missed seeing large photos with delicious recipes around here.

He just landed a huge new project, so I doubt he’ll be making pasta with broccoli anytime soon, though this tasty high-protein dish is an easy one, so maybe he’ll find the time.

  1. Since these noodles have been discontinued, what sort of noodles do you use? is there a good protein noodle substitute you’ve found?

    • I want to make my own pasta too! I make homemade pasta all the time using regular flour but I want to cut back on the carbs and I was wanting to use Almond Flour instead.

      The problem is this. The Almond flour will be too crumbly, it would be hard to get a smooth texture, and would be sticky and prevent you from cutting it into the pasta shapes. Using the regular ingredients of Pasta makes it seem more like corn bread than dough. yes, I’ve tried it!

      I ran across this link that you might find useful. However, she is not using almond flour but I’m going to substitute the other flours for the almond instead and then use the other ingredients.

      If I can find something tasty to bind it together to eventually form a dough. I’m set.

  2. Elana,

    I have a question, have you ever made your own pasta. I’d like to make my own gluten free pasta and need some pointers.

    Thank you
