That sounds really good, does the Pasta have the same texture as regular Pasta?

No, it's more chewy but I like that a lot. In fact I prefer bean pasta over regular. However, I only like the Explore brand, the rest can take a hike. I have no idea what Explore is doing differently, but they know their bean pasta for sure. :D

The Aldi edamame, black soybean & soybean pastas are all pretty good. And that’s coming from someone who’s fairly intolerant of most healthy substitute type products.

Meh, I want the same ALDI/Trader Joe's assortment in Germany's ALDI markets. Neither ALDI Nord nor ALDI Süd have decent bean Pasta. The one one can get at ALDI Süd was like 🤢, exactly as the other brands I tried, never seen them at ALDI Nord.

What I've seen from the website is that the brand in the US is a different one. Doesn't seem to be only a different name because the pasta also looks different. Maybe Explore has a deal with ALDI in the US. :D

I do think the Aldi brand Protein pastas are private label of the Explore brand. I haven’t tried them side by side, but my taste memory is that they are the same (only the Aldi brand is much, much cheaper)

Even more frustrating, lol. The ones I saw at a German ALDI looked different from the Explore ones. However, it's been awhile. Maybe something changed.

From what I know of the food mfg industry, and how Aldi works, I doubt there is much if any coordination on item manufacturing between the US and Germany.

I still can’t believe @sillykitty had to tell me that Aldi’s corporate hq is in my town. I didn’t think anything was based here!

I made chicken tacos tonight, I’m getting really good at homemade tortillas! I’m about 2/3 of the way through this and need to take a break. I haven’t eaten a lot today, so I plan on finishing this!

Omg so good! I’ve been trying new recipes. Im so board eating the same thing everyday. This was my dinner. This is a low carb short bread with whip cream, strawberries, and chocolate curls. No left overs. Gave my hubby the last 2 bites!

Did someone say shortbread?! AND low-carb?!?

More details pls: was it comparable to hones-to-goodness shortbreads? I have yet to come across a keto/low-carb recipe that can stand up to my high dessert standards, lol.

Looks really good though! #yummmmmer
