Created by the Noodles & Company’s culinary team over the best part of two years, LEANguini offers the taste and appearance of traditional linguini noodles, but with 56% fewer net carbs, 30% fewer total carbs, and 44% higher protein than traditional wheat noodles.
To introduce LEANguini, the brand is testing three new dishes paired with the new noodle and offering it as a substitution in any dish.
New made-to-order test dishes include:
- LEANguini Lemon Parmesan: LEANguini noodles in a new to the menu lemon parmesan sauce with roasted zucchini, Roma tomato, spinach, and topped with parmesan and parsley.
- LEANguini Fresca: LEANguini noodles with balsamic vinaigrette, olive oil, roasted garlic, tomato, red onion, spinach, and topped with parmesan cheese.
- LEANguini Shrimp Scampi: LEANguini noodles with shrimp in light scampi sauce, roasted zucchini, Roma tomato, and topped with parmesan, parsley, and lemon.
To encourage fans to try LEANguini, the brand created the January Healthy Options Challenge, an exclusive offer for all Noodles Rewards members. Throughout the month of January fans who opt for a noodles swap of LEANguini (at select test locations), Zoodles or Caulifloodles will receive double the points on their order.
LEANguini will be available for a limited time at select restaurants in Colorado, Illinois, and Ohio. Just be aware that all three dishes may not be available in each test market.
