The South Beach Diet and the Atkins Diet made a low carbohydrate lifestyle popular for weightloss and just good health in general. Now, supermarkets have even jumped on the band wagon offering a plethora of low carb pastas, sauces, beer and even candy! I am of Italian descent, so when I decided I needed to cut back on the carbohydrates, I had to find a pasta that would cut it. Pasta is a staple in my home and life without it just would not be the same! I put everything on my pasta. I love to saute fresh seasonal vegetables in a light tomato sauce, make clam linguine, or just plain olive oil with some Parmesan cheese!
I think I've tried almost every low carb pasta on the market. And I have to say, I was ecstatic when I tasted Dreamfield's low carb pasta! It does not taste mushy or like cardboard like most of the low cab pastas on the market. You can cook it perfectly al dente, and it tastes like the real thing! Even my kids like it and that's not an easy feat!
Nutritionally, 7 ounces of this pasta is 170 calories, 30 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber and 7 grams of carbs. It's high in fiber and goes easy on the glycemic index which makes it a perfect choice for diabetics. This low carb pasta is rich in prebiotic fiber which is the same fiber found in asparagus and garlic, so it's very healthy. Dreamfield's pasta is also a good choice for pasta salads or soups. It comes in 7 different shapes like angel hair, spaghetti, linguine, elbows, penne rigate, rotini and lasagna. Dreamfield's also sells many other healthy foods including low carb pasta sauces.
