Review: KNOW Better Pasta (chickpea pasta)

Trying to get back onto the healthy eating train, and going to do the gluten-free and dairy-free thing again.  Oh the fun. ;)

Tonight for dinner, I tried the KNOW Better Pasta (the twists variety).  It's got one ingredient only - chickpeas - so it's dairy-free, grain-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, peanut-free, soy-free, yeast-free, trans-fat-free, etc. 

I so very much wanted to like this pasta.  It cooked up quickly - only 3-4 minutes once it hit the boiling water.

However, the flavor was terrible.  The texture was ok - a bit mushy, but not inedible.  The flavor was the absolute downfall.  I made cioppino which had lots of onion and garlic and tomatoes (and seafood), and even that flavorful sauce wasn't enough to cover up the terrible flavor of this pasta.  It was awful.  I really hate to throw away food, but I don't know what I can do to try to salvage this pasta for a future dinner.  So very sad to say this, but I do not at all recommend this product.
