This is a winning combination that satisfies without weighing down and gives the body proteins of high biological value. In addition it is a dish particularly rich in fiber, which does not contain fats but help the body to calm hunger and keep balanced.
This is a great way to serve pasta with lots of vegetables and beans. The pasta is a nice taste compliment to the beans. Beans are low in saturated fat and sodium, and very low in cholesterol. It is also a good source of Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium, and a very good source of Protein, Vitamin C, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folate, Copper and Manganese.
A filling and nutritious dish indeed! Make sure beans don’t make you too gassy though as your colleagues or partner at home might not be very appreciative 🙂
