I am on a low carb diet. I found Dreamfield Spaghetti. This spaghetti tastes great and does not raise your blood sugar levels like regular pasta. When I am tired of eating spaghetti sqash and just need pasta, this is a good choice for me. If your stores don't have it, order from the net.

I tried a recipe where you substituted cooked cauliflower for mashed potatoes and it was wonderful. Now I substitute cauliflower in all my potato recipes. So I thought, why not see what other things I could substitute cauliflower for that would be as good. I now use cauliflower as a substitute for pasta, with a low fat pasta sauce it is every bit as good as spaghetti or macaroni. This saves hundreds of calories and is really good.
To substitute for mashed potatoes, just boil up a head of cauliflower, drain and mash. For a pasta substitute cook flowerettes, drain and use your favorite low fat sauces. Top with a bit of Parmesan.4
Try substituting spaghetti squash for regular pasta next time you have spaghetti. It's quick and easy to cook in a zip-lock steamer bag in the microwave, and it tastes great with a good marinara sauce. Our whole family has enjoyed this and the kids even eat it!
