I’m a pasta freak. I could probably be considered an honorary Italian I love it so much. Oprah says we can have bread! We can have pasta! Yes, yes you can but you shall pay, and pay dearly in Smartpoints.
Usually I will just take the hit and eat the real deal when it comes to lower point versions of things. I have a low tolerance for a lot of the things people doing Weight Watchers find as a low point version of something that is a favorite.
Take the Weight Watcher Skinny Pasta – it is zero points! It also tastes like it was made from rubber bands and puppy tears. I mean it is seriously NASTY. I’m pretty sure tree bark is zero points also, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to go out and eat it.
So when I saw people raving about this Carba-Nada pasta I was very reluctant to try it. It was there in the back of my mind after seeing someone raving about it on Connect, the Weight Watcher social media site.
I checked a few of the grocery stores in my area and I couldn’t find it. The online store locator said it was at a few of my local grocery stores but they didn’t have it.
Then I saw it on Amazon. I took a leap of faith and ordered some. I mean, at half the points of regular pasta if it was decent this could be a game changer. I mean it is 3 points for 1 1/2 cups! Most other brands will cost you 6-7 points for that amount!
Game changer it is. I didn’t even do anything fancy with it. It was delivered yesterday and I made a half put together 2% cheese sauce with the fettuccine noodles and it was delicious! I mean they are like noodles! For real!
If you can’t find Carba-Nada in your neck of the woods here’s where I ordered it:
Al Dente Carba-Nada Egg Fettuccine, 10-Ounce Bags (Pack of 6)
I’m already planning a super delicious meal with it for Thursday, so stay tuned for the recipe Friday!
I am an Amazon Associate so that does link to my account. It doesn’t cost you more but I will get a small referral fee. This site costs me money so I figured why not? If this bothers you for some reason here is a link that has nothing to do with me 🙂
