Low Carb Pasta

Has anyone found a low carb pasta that tastes good like regular pasta? Have tried a couple and they taste awful. Need to stay low carb and avoid "whites" like white bread, pasta, rice etc. But I love pasta! So, if you know of something please let me know.
Thanks.

Re: Low Carb Pasta

Once I tried low carb pasta and threw it out. It was beyond awful. I also purchased at the same store low carb rolls which was like eating a sponge. Threw that out as well. A low carb diet means no pasta. This is the reason why I prefer a calorie diet.

Pasta is a nice low calorie meal that can be enjoyed once in a while unless your on the Atkins diet. I've tried the low carb pasta out of curiosity and it tased pretty bad.

Re: Low Carb Pasta

The ones that are REALLY low carb taste awful and the ones that SAY they have a "special" way to make their carbs not count are lying, but at least their pasta tastes like pasta (at a HUGE markup.)

NO PASTA was the single worst aspect of Atkins for me. Yeccch, never again.

Re: Low Carb Pasta

Maybe you shouldn't do the low carb pasta, try the wheat pasta. I think its pretty good.

Re: Low Carb Pasta

Miss 18: I agree with the Whole Wheat. I just purchased a Whole Wheat Spaghetti which actually has less calories (180 for 2oz dry versus 220) plus it has a very large fiber content plus lower carbs. This doesn't help the original poster who's on Atkins but is good for those on calorie diets.

Re: Low Carb Pasta

Dreamfields pasta is excellent and low carb. I've tried the Atkins brand which was awful and a few others that were equally as terrible. Dreamfields come in a black box. They make macaroni, spaghetti and penne.

Re: Low Carb Pasta

I also like Dreamfields---you can't taste the difference. DeCecco whole wheat pasta is excellent. I tried other whole wheat brands and most of them were disgusting.
