Lamb and Red Pepper Stew -Sapore High Barley Fibre Natural Barley Fettuccine
Fettuccine with Aunt Lee Geok's Lamb and Red Pepper Stew -Sapore High Barley Fibre Natural Barley Fettuccine
I like the colours in this photo, red capsicum, browned lamb, pale fettuccine and green round beans.
Curious to see how "healthy", high fibre fettuccine tastes like, we got a pack of high fibre fettuccine made with 40% barley flour.
It claims to have 5.1% of fibre, or 3.2g of fibre per serve, which is apparently 10% of your RDI. In comparision, most pastas, exluding whole-wheat pastas, tend to be around 1% fibre.
The fettuccine tastes ok, none of that egg flavour you get from good fettuccine. The texture isn't as chewy nor as smooth either, not the best for pasta dishes. I made some of the leftovers into a lamb and pasta soup and it was quite good, nicely soaking up the flavours from the lamb stew.
About AUD2.50 for a 250g pack makes 4 smallish serves.
