Noodles & Company unveiled its newest menu items for Spring: BUFF Bowls. Four of Noodles & Company’s most popular pasta bowls—Japanese Pan, Whole Grain Tuscan Fresca, Pesto Cavatappi and Bangkok Curry—are now available in the buff. Each BUFF Bowl features a double portion of veggies, topped with protein, and served on a bed of spinach in place of the noodles, for a dish full of flavor yet under 400 calories.

“This spring, we’re excited to debut a new way for guests to enjoy some their favorite global flavors. Our new BUFF Bowls are low carb and high protein versions of popular Noodle’s & Company dishes, and each bowl is made fresh to order in our kitchens like all menu items every day,” says CEO Kevin Reddy. “At Noodles & Company, we pride ourselves on offering a wide variety of dishes from healthy to indulgent. We have always encouraged creativity and customization for our guests looking to enjoy our world of flavors, and our new BUFF Bowls featuring only 14–39 grams of carbs and packing in 17–31 grams of protein, take that extra step to make it easier for our guests looking for a lighter offering without skimping on satisfying flavor.”

The following BUFF Bowls are now available in all Noodles & Company locations nationwide:
