After a successful test launch, LEANguini is now available nationwide at all Noodles & Company locations. The proprietary, first-of-its-kind noodle was created in-house by Noodles' culinary team to have the same satisfying taste and texture as a regular linguini but 44% fewer net carbs and 50% higher protein than traditional wheat pasta noodles.
"As we've innovated our menu over the past few years bringing forward more health-focused options and balanced dishes, we've seen more and more guests change their eating habits and try our healthier menu options," said Stacey Pool, chief marketing officer at Noodles & Company. "With the versatility of LEANguini and how well it complements every dish on our menu, we anticipate many guests will transition to this noodle because its taste, texture, and nutritional composition is unlike any other noodle available anywhere."
