I don’t know where to begin when telling you about this product…should I start with the fact that it tastes identical to regular pasta (unlike many wheat pastas and other alternatives)? Or should I start with the fact that it is has 40% fewer calories than regular pasta? Both are soooo exciting to me ! I cannot live without pasta and 400 calorie meals don’t allow for a whole lot of comforting carbs….well, until now !
I am sooooo happy to have found this product. Now I can have a NORMAL portion size which makes me a much happier person ! This product feeds my half Italian soul 🙂
Here are some of the facts about pasta from FiberGourmet:
* 130 calories per serving, 40% fewer than standard pasta
* 18g fiber per serving – 72% of the Daily Value
* Nutrtition Facts backed by actual laboratory analysis
* Convenient 1/2 lb packages with a 2 year shelf-life
* Kosher certified by the Kof-K
* 40% fewer “net carbs” than standard pasta
* Only 2 WW Points
(standard pasta is 4, whole wheat is 3)
They have penne (great in mac and cheese dishes), cut up alfredo noodles (perfect for soups), rotini (I use these in pasta salads), and more. Any recipe that calls for pasta – substitute FiberGourmet pasta and get way more food for your 400 calories !
They also have some flavored fettucine noodles that I have not tried yet. The great people over at FiberGourmet are going to send me some to try out and I’ll let you know all about them and give you some recipes to use with them.
You can buy direct on the FiberGourmet site. Or I sometimes get them from Amazon when I am there getting other stuff anyhow. I recommend a sampler pack to get you started.
When you order, tell Ari I sent ya 🙂
