Plant-Based and Delicious ‘GAME DAY’ Snacking Ideas Sure To Be a Touchdown

BY : PUBLISHED : January 31st, 2021 UPDATED: September 23rd, 2021

With Super Bowl LV just a week away on February 7th, I wanted to share with you some delicious plant-based recipes courtesy of PENNE STRAWS by Pasta Snacks, DAH! Yogurt and O’dang Foods will have you scoring a TOUCHDOWN in the kitchen. Check out these Super Bowl recipes that are a must-have to elevate your stay-at-home celebration!

One of my favorite plant-based snacking brands is PENNE STRAWS by Pasta Snacks. This has become a consumer favorite over the last few years, gaining attention as the go-to chip alternative. The delicious taste, perfect crunch, and low-calorie ingredients are offered in the shape of actual penne pasta noodles. They’re gluten-free, seasoned to perfection, and offered in a variety of tasty plant-based flavors such as Cinnamon Churro, Marinara, Lemon Garlic, and Sweet Pepper. Made with all-natural ingredients inclusive of Lentils & White Beans, the snack is non-GMO, OUD Kosher certified, and cholesterol-free. Crafted from durum wheat semolina flour and farro, a higher protein grain for a more nutrient-dense product and baked with fine seasonings. The results are a robust taste and crispy texture throughout. The low-calorie snacks are a gently baked, healthy snack option for the entire family to enjoy. Available via E-comm purchasing at A portion of all Pasta Snacks proceeds will be donated to the Ryan Seacrest Foundation across all flavor varieties throughout 2021! You can enjoy healthy, feel-good snacking with a purpose!

Another option featuring delicious PENNE STRAWS is their Snacking Tray Paired with The Jersey Tomato Co. as a tomato “salsa” dip. This is a fun way to update the standard “chips and dip” appetizer and snacking tray with a plant-based delicious, crunchy snack.

To make an easy, yet flavorful and fresh tomato dipping option, in lieu of traditional salsa, The Jersey Tomato Co.’s Spicy or Tomato Basil flavors, make for the perfect dip to pair with Penne Straws. The Jersey Tomato Co. offers fresh-from-the-garden Jersey tomatoes that are naturally low sodium and a healthier sauce, and lend themself to dip pairings on their own due to their fresh flavorful taste and textures. For a milder option, combine the Spicy and Tomato Basil flavors for all to enjoy.

Just two steps! Pour the sauce into your platter and add the PENNE STRAWS straight from their bag!

{The Jersey Tomato Co. offers fresh-from-the-garden, naturally low sodium tomato sauces featuring renowned chef and notable ‘Top Chef’ Head Judge Tom Colicchio as the brand’s official partner and culinary consultant. The brand’s emphasis on vine-ripened, garden-fresh taste, and naturally healthful attributes sets it apart from the competition. For more information visit and follow @thejerseytomatoco}
