Trader Joe's Organic Black Bean Rotini

Trader Joe's Organic 'Black Bean Rotini' is another attempt to make a better noodle and again they simply fall short of the normal or whole wheat noodle.

Flavor wise they have a distinct taste that is stronger than normal noodles, lends itself to the savory, and reminds of black bean soup. Don't expect to put leftovers of this in the refrigerator and have them be the same the next day. Further it needs to be noted that these noodles will disintegrate in the water if cooked too long so to eat them you need to be the kind of person who keeps and eye on there food.
Now, if you look at the nutritional facts you will find that these noodles are loaded with protein and fiber. They are great for those looking to gain muscle mass or lose weight. I can't say I fell in love with these noodles but my brother can't get enough of them.

You have to ask yourself if the extra effort is worth the health benefits? These are better for you but harder to cook with.
