WOW! This low-carb pasta review video is SO COOL! I absolutely have to share it with my daughter, Rachel, who is actively following a Keto diet!
Honestly, I have never tried any low-carb noodle substitutes. I always just opt for either zucchini noodles, or I’ll use some egg version. For instance for lasagne I just make egg crepes and use those like I would lasagne noodles in my bake. For spaghetti-type pasta, I always just make zoodles. Mostly because I’ve heard lots of bad reviews for the shirataki or other ‘lower-carb’ type noodles. Plus, from what I understand, those pasta substitutes can be pretty expensive. So I just prefer to go with the zucchini version.
But…I like zucchini. If I didn’t, and I missed spaghetti (spaghetti squash just isn’t a decent replacement for pasta, in my opinion.) Then I probably would have tried these other keto-friendly noodle substitutes. Though I have never thought they looked very appealing.
These low-carb pasta noodles, though? They seem like a crazy good alternative to traditional wheat or grain pasta! And the carb count is insanely low!
THEY DO LOOK LIKE A LOT OF WORK
Granted, this is basically kitchen chemistry. Which does kind of creep me out a little bit. But they are basically real food. And even though this low-carb pasta seems like a lot of effort, Wes makes the good point that they don’t require cooking! What? So, if you keep that in mind, then the prep work doesn’t really seem so bad.
I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SEE HIM PUT SAUCE ON THE NOODLES
But again, Wes makes a good point. Pasta is basically just a vehicle for the sauce. So, any sauce is going to make them taste good.
I liked that he chose to omit the turmeric because, while very good for you, I personally don’t like the bitter taste turmeric adds to food. So, in my opinion, this might detract from the flavor of the noodles. Also, I love that he told us about the smell. Because I am a very odor-oriented person. And we all know that, not only do we ‘eat with our eyes’ first, but our nose is a core element to the eating experience. So, I liked that he tells his viewers about not only the texture of the low-carb pasta, but he also smells it to let us know about that aspect, as well.
