Stockpiling the spaghetti? Here are 4 pasta recipes to make at home.

We’ve always held pasta in high regard — it’s the ultimate comfort food, right? But now it seems it may actually be a hot commodity thanks to all the panic buying we’re seeing in supermarkets across the country. Serious note: not cool, guys.

There’s no denying that a bowl of carbs can be a great way to boost your mood though, and we’re always on board with that. Here are four simple & delicious high-protein pasta recipes for you to put to the test.


1. Lean, Creamy Sausage Pasta

Made with quark and low-fat sausages, this delicious recipe is deceptively creamy considering each serving contains less than 6g of fat.

Cals: 415              Protein: 34g        Carbs: 48g           Fat: 5.8g


2. BBQ Pulled Chicken Mac N Cheese

So you're probably already a mac n cheese fan... but have you tried taking it to the next level with tangy BBQ pulled chicken? You really should. Right now.

Cals: 597              Protein: 37g        Carbs: 51g           Fat: 21g


3. Loaf Tin Lasagne

Lasagne is top tier pasta, no doubt about it, but the time it takes to make it can be slightly off-putting. Well, that was before. Now you have all the time in the world to spend in your kitchen creating this absolute delight...

Cals: 556              Protein: 46g        Carbs: 66g           Fat: 13g
