Its pretty much the same as normal pasta
This stuff tastes the same as regular pasta. Just be sure to read the label on your pasta sauce so you don’t inadvertently take in a lot of sugars via the sauce, or better yet, make your own.
A few things to be aware of that I have discovered:
Don’t overcook it!
Don’t put cooked pasta in the sauce and heat it – that is, do NOT pour the sauce into the pasta and mix it up in the pan and heat it! Cook and drain the pasta firs according ot the directions ont he box, THEN plate the bare pasta first (possibly tossing it lightly in olive oil) and only then pour the sauce and other toppngs on and serve immediately.
Again: Don’t put the sauce, meat and cheese on the pasta until you actually plate it and serve it.
I’ve found if you “re-cook” Dreamfields “angel hair” pasta in normal (acidic) tomato based pasta sauces that it does hit my blood sugar a lot harder than if they are put together at the last minute. Same goes for overcooking it (aside from the fact that any pasta that’s overcooked turns to mush). My guess is the extra heat or acidity causes the “sequestered” carbs to break out and become available for digestion.
All in all, this stuff in incredible, and tastes no different than most other boxed pastas, and doesn’t cause the blood sugar spikes and weight gain that the normal pastas do. I bought a case of it, and have some of the other types of Dreamfields as well.

Fret no more!
But a major bane of a low-carb diet has been the necessary elimination of pasta. And we all know that whole wheat pastas just aren’t the same. Well, Dreamfields is just the same. Welcome back, quick, easy, delicious pasta meals. A jar of that wonderful Costco White Linen Collection Marinara Sauce, 2 carbs per 1/2 cup, and a quarter cup [cooked] of Dreamfields pasta, and: Bob’s your uncle! You have a lovely dinner, with a simple salad, and the next day your weight will not be affected negatively [don’t eat any cake, though!].
Happy days are here again!
