Great Low Carb Bread Company Pastas.... Rotini, Shells, Fettucini and more... ready for pasta salads, speghetti, alfredo and so much more

 


This is a 're-post' of sorts - originally blogged about in March of 2021.  However, it's here today because for the past 3-4 weeks I've been trying to talk myself into spending the money to place another order of low-carb, or keto foods and ugh... I just don't want to spend the money!   But I really need to, as it's much easier, more fun and quicker to cook healthy low carb when you have ingredients on hand.
 

When it comes to pasta salads, I make them using whatever we have on hand at the time, or whatever I feel like that day.  I also sometimes take into account if I've already had a high number of carbs that day and want to leave out higher carb veggies or use fewer of them, and take into account what the salad is being served with.

Lastly is the dressing used.  I always keep a couple low carb no sugar added dressings on hand, but also often throw together my own versions - either Italian or Ranch.  Both bode well in pasta salads depending on what taste you're going for.  The final note to that is sometimes I use mayonnaise with the Italian dressings sometimes not. 

Basically you use your favorite pasta salad recipe or toss together random ingredients - but do so using low carb options.

  • pasta - low carb/sugar free only
  • fresh broccoli
  • fresh cauliflower
  • red pepper
  • fresh lettuce
  • cabbage shreds
  • green onion
  • cucumbers
  • mushrooms
  • cheese - mozzarella or feta with Italian or ranch
  • cheese - cheddar if using ranch or plain mayonnaise
  • basil
  • dressing - Italian style or ranch style within your personal carb counts for the day
  • black or green olives, red onion, yellow or orange peppers, fresh spinach, etc. (watch your carb counts and likes/dislikes)


Do not use high carb veggies like yellow onion, peas, corn, potato or carrots.  Use just a bit of tomato if you wish - it's higher carb or some artichoke hearts (not many - higher carb).

Mix and chill.  Serve cold.





Here is the nutrition listing for the Great Low Carb Breads Company Rotini Pasta.  Just 7 carbs.





I buy some low carb products from Amazon - although I'm picky about what food items I order from there.  I usually buy products from Netrition, but I have bought some from Amazon when I'm placing an order anyway and can easily just add one or two items to my order. My last order of low carb pastas came from Amazon and they were fine.  Not out of date, not smashed and were safe and sound.
