Pros: It is exactly the same as high carb pasta but with lower digestible carbs
Cons: NONE so far!
Dreamfields Healthy Carb Living Spaghetti
Where do I begin . . . Dreamfields spaghetti is the only pasta that should be sold! Period! The texture is exactly like your high carb flour based pasta. The appearance is exactly the same as Barilla and any other high priced pastas. There really is no difference that we could tell from typical high carb pasta and Dreamfields pasta.
When I found out I was a diabetic this past year I thought I would NEVER be able to have pasta again. I am here to tell you that this pasta is not only the same (but in some ways better) than regular pasta. Personally I think it cooks up better than regular pasta because it is not as mushy if cooked properly as some pastas can be.
The first thing I made was spaghetti and meatballs. I invited over a few friends and used Nate's meatless meatballs, Muir Glen Cabernet spaghetti sauce (because it was lower in sugar but the flavor was spectacular) and then the Dreamfield's spaghetti. My dinner party was a HUGE HIT and I did not tell anyone that I used meatless meatballs or a low carb spaghetti. They actually thought I served them authentic Italian meatballs and regular high carb spaghetti! If you can find Nate's Italian flavored meatless meatballs grab a bag I promise you will not be sorry!
I checked my blood sugar before serving the dinner and then again 2 hours after the dinner and the difference was minimal 102 before and 108 after! I've learned to control my diabetes through diet so this was all without the aid of insulin!
The reason Dreamfields is different from the typical white flour pasta is (from the box):

Our unique recipe contains no cholesterol, zero grams of trans fat, and is naturally saturated fat and sodium free.
