Spaghetti squash is definitely a good pasta options. I really haven't worried about carbs from pasta. I eat the Tinkyada brand and that's it. Since starting back on Sparks and eating better I've actually been under my supposed carb grams that Sparks and the USDA want me to have. Which works for me cause I actually lose instead of gain.

a good noodle to try is shiratake noodles from your organic produce section, tastes good, made from tofu, only 20 calories, 5 g carbs and .5g of fat per serving and reasonably priced

I use brown rice pasta and also corn pasta and like them both - no difference in taste. I think I will stick with that.

I have tried these noodles, they are tasteless and they smell fishy. If you rinse them you can get rid of the smell. I found that the tastelessness made them not worth the expensive price.

I love quinoa itself, so I figured quinoa pasta would be a good alternative pasta to try. Warm it definitely tastes great!

I LOVE quinoa pasta warm, but I made a cold pasta salad with it once and it was horrible!

Rubbery and almost tasted like it had some sort of film on it. But as soon as it was heated, it came right back to life. So weird!

In terms of taste and texture? I've tried the De Boles and thought those were disgusting. I need to go back to the old grocery store I used to work at and get their soba noodles. Different flavors like pumpkin or sweet potato. Only thing bad with them is there isn't enough.

I haven't found anything to replace my egg noodles either but I did find spirals that I use for tuna casserole now. I'm from CT, and Stop & Shop carries a brand called Timkyada in their organic section. It's organic brown rice pasta and so good you would never know the difference. Hope this helps. www.ricepasta.com or www.tinkyada.com

If these are the shiritaki noodles, plain they are absolutely disgusting. Maybe if you had enough sauce for they to soak up they would be edible. Several years ago when the shiritaki noodles were touted for their health benefits I ordered some and they all went in the compost pile.

Nope. Never even heard of them. I'll let someone else guinea pig themselves. I did that with the shiratki noodles. First time thought they were ok. Second time they were disgusting.

On the nutritional sheet it shows fiber but how much?

I myself loved the egg noodles before I was diagnosed. Does anyone know if they make the egg noodles gf?

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
