After a long day, there’s little we look forward to more than coming home, snuggling up someplace warm, and tucking into a warm and comforting bowl of pasta. Not only is it texturally versatile — you can buy it in an abundance of different shapes and sizes — but it’s the perfect vehicle for different toppings, sauces, and a great way to experience different cuisines.

Maybe you’re looking for more protein than typical wheat pasta provides; maybe you’re trying to eat grain-free; perhaps you just want to jazz up your pasta nights and try something new and nutritious. Whatever your reason is, we have put together a list of 15 different pasta options that stray from the norm, including varieties that are made from beans, veggies, soy, grain-free flours, and more.
