Pasta and Rice substitutes



Recommended Posts

I have tried the lentil and zucchini Pasta. It's OK. Pretty high in carbs so not an every day sort of thing. One bag is good for about 6 servings for me. I used some grated Parmesan on it.

I would say yes. But I can handle a small quantity only, so you don't get the sedative effect of a big bowl of noodles!

My girlfriend who is a pasta-holic says that the only thing that actually works for her, "fools" her Pasta love is spaghetti squash. There's about 7grams of carbs in a cup. Be careful with the lentil stuff. I once purchased lentil crackers and just a few gave me such painful gas, I couldn't leave the house!! [emoji15] I imagine that kind of gas with our pouches could be horrible!

I got a veggi spiralizer and make zucchini noodles- sauté it in olive oil garlic and onion powder put spaghetti sauce on it and love it! Got the recipes on Pinterest too.

I made a baked ziti using the Birdseye zucchini and lentil noodles with ground turkey, homemade Pasta Sauce and some cheese. My husband is a picky eater and he really liked the meal. I have also used riced cauliflower to make "fried rice" which my family also liked. I have also found a really good cauliflower Pizza Crust from a company called Califlour. My husband and son were super skeptical because I have tried making them myself and were horrible failures. They really liked this crust and said they had no idea it was cauliflower.

I was wondering has anyone tried Pasta and rice substitutes? I see birds eye makes zucchini and lentil pasta it's pasta made out of veggies don't know if anyone has anything else they tried or if they tried that. Looking for options in the future.


I really just omit the carbs and substitute an extra veggie.
