Noodles and Company adds low-carb LEANguini Shrimp Scampi, pasta line

New, low-carb pasta line has 56% fewer net carbs than traditional wheat noodles

Noodles and Company is featuring LEANguini Lemon Parmesan and LEANguini Shrimp Scampi as ways to try its new, low-carb pasta. Prepared to order, LEANguini noodles weigh in with 56% fewer net carbs than traditional wheat noodles. The recently-introduced pasta line also has 30% fewer total carbs and 44% higher protein.

According to Noodles and Company, the new LEANguinie also provides a comparable experience to fresh noodles. The low-carb pasta has the same flavor, texture, and appetizing qualities, with fewer carbs and calories.

Customers can substitute traditional noodles for LEANguini noodles.

“Our guests took so well to Zoodles and Cauliflower Noodles, creating a health-forward noodle that has the same taste and texture as a traditional noodle was the clear next challenge for our dedicated and talented culinary team and we think you will love the result,” said Nick Graff, executive chef and VP of Culinary at Noodles and Company.

Another recommended pasta substitution comes in the form of LEANguini Fresca. This dish starts with LEANguini noodles, which are then combined with balsamic vinaigrette, olive oil, roasted garlic, tomato, red onion, spinach, and topped with parmesan cheese. The LEANguini Shrimp Scampi and LEANguini Lemon Parmesan dishes round out the low-carb pasta pairings featured by the culinary team.

“We cannot wait for our guests to try LEANguini in one of these featured dishes or to simply substitute LEANguini into their favorite order,” said Stacey Pool, chief marketing officer for Noodles and Company. “In fact, our initial paneling of LEANguini showed us that more than half of guests would like to substitute this noodle into their go-to Noodles dish making LEANguini one of our most versatile and desired noodles yet.”


Noodles’ Zoodles, made with cauliflower, has been a popular, healthier choice at the fast casual. As additional examples, Cauliflower Infused Rigatoni, Salads, and Perfect Bowls also rank high on the menu. These show that customers can expect the same quality, freshness, and customization when selecting healthy menu options.
