I haven't tried it, but I have tried this black bean pasta:

It tasted just like black beans, and needed a sauce or dressing that would taste good with those.

I tried the edamame version of that and it was good. Very expensive at £3 for a tiny pack, though.

I'd like to try that chickpea pasta! One of my favourite pastas is the Doves farm brown rice spaghetti, has more bite to it than most gluten-free pasta.

I saw some ...somewhere... and nearly bought it, but it was kind of expensive. Curious to know how it is too!

I've had it a few times! I think it's decent for a GF pasta, but you definitely need a very flavorful sauce to go with it - it does have a fairly pronounced flavor.

Interesting! There's Tolerant pastas too, made from black beans or red lentils: http://www.tolerantfoods.com/#!product-list/c18gl

I haven't tried any of these, but now I really want to get the chickpea shells or elbows to try in mac and cheese!

I've also had Modern Table's Lentil Penne which is made from green lentils and oat fiber.

http://www.moderntable.com/our-products/lentil-penne/

I like it better than the black bean pasta-- it has a more versatile flavor IMO.

I've had their red lentil ones, and they're great! They don't have a bean flavor. They do boil over as quickly and dramatically as lentils, so you have to watch them closely.

I find them really grainy as leftovers, though, so for me they're only good when just made.
