    * Excellent macros, tastes great and very filling. Theyíre a little thicker than Iíd like, thatís the only reason I didnít give a 5. An absolute for the dieting and bodybuilding community.

    * I'm trying different brands of low carb pasta to see which is the closest to regular pasta. It takes 20 minutes to boil. You don't need to add salt to the boiling water. The pasta is already salted. This pasta water can boil over, so keep an eye out for it. I tasted the final product plain. No sauce. No butter. Like everyone else, the texture was a bit rubbery. Actually, the rubbery part did not bother me. I would call it super al dente. The pasta itself was relatively flavorless. Unlike other low carb pasta products, the pasta held up and did not fall apart. Overall, I would purchase this brand again. Ciao Carb has the most variety of pasta shapes and it is not overly expensive. 7 grams of carbs per serving is far better then other brands.

    * Definitely not horrible... Chewy maybe a bit... taste is quite neutral... the sauce basically dictates the show. 50g portion and a serving of chicken or beef should satisfy most. The portion alone probably wont. I got 3 boxes, and foresee getting some more when these run out. In all fairness it is a substitute for pasta...not another brand of pasta... want the true pasta taste and texture... then deal with the carbs. Want a low carb compromise...i think this is a good one. Also Atkins which I felt had a better texture (if not taste) has been discontinued.

    * The taste of this product is similar to whole wheat pasta but the texture is much rougher. In general, I do NOT recommend this pasta in a plain sauce. It was pretty awful for mac and cheese. However, when used in a dish along with chicken or sausage, you forget all about the texture, and it becomes a real low carb treat! I find that one 50 g "single portion" package can serve two people as addition to a chicken or sausage dish, and it adds just 3.5 net carbs per serving.

    * Overall, it tastes a little more al dente than regular pasta, but considering the carb content, it's really a wonderful product and I love the single serve pouches. When you're cooking it, I would recommend leaving it in for 20 min instead of 15, or as long as you can before it gets brittle. That makes it a little more palatable. Great low carb pasta replacement!
