Penne Straws Snack with Plant-Based Dips Shapped as Football

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 www.pastasnacks.com. 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!
