Their super impressive bean pastas contain One Ingredient: ORGANIC BEANS.

Their bean pasta line contains Adzuki, Edamame, Soybean, and Black Bean. Best yet they are all organic. Their website has tons of fun & delicious recipes to explore as well. 

I am in love with their lentil pastas. So many fun pasta shapes & colors these are perfect for holidays and for kids. My youngest niece thinks the colored pastas are SO fun! They even have a black spaghetti made from organic black beans. She asks for this by name. We used it for Halloween originally & we all loved it!
