Edamame pasta is great

24g of protein per serving, which is pretty insane for pasta. Being soybeans, it's a complete protein.
For me and quite a few people I know, it's also protein that's highly satiating. Two servings will definitely fill me up, which pretty much just doesn't happen for plant-based protein for me.
Cooks very fast -- boil some water, add the pasta, wait like 5 minutes and it's done.
Imo, the taste and especially the texture are way better than normal pasta. I like the chewy consistency and it has a real distinct taste.
The kind I get has one ingredient. I guess this is true for normal pasta too, but it's pretty rare for alternative products.
Vegan, if you care about that sort of thing.
High in fiber, if you care about that sort of thing.
Low in carbs, if you care about that sort of thing. Maybe not the best keto food, but quite good for low-carb, and totally blows out of the water any other bean product and most soy products as well.
Seems to be fairly nutritious. My package didn't say much about that though, other than large amounts of potassium.
Very low in calories. I generally try to avoid this, but might be useful if you're trying to lose weight.
Mine was $2.75, which is the cheapest I've seen. A box is around a day of protein for me, but it might not be the most economical option. Plus the lack of calories means you have to have something with it. This is really only a con if your protein needs are high and your budget is super tight though.
If you like meat-heavy sauces, the large amount of protein and fiber will make you horribly bloated.
It's green and so looks really gross.
