Imagine the pasta-bilities! When you make pasta from bean curd sheets, you can pack 22 grams of protein in per serving with no gluten and 7 grams of carbs!

Forget carb-loading, now you can protein-load with this pasta made with 22-grams of protein per serving! Using bean curd sheets, this is easy to make and gluten-free with only 7 grams of carbs for the pasta (the marinara will add to the carb count, of course). I used Muir Glen organic since it doesn’t have added sugar.
