Keto Spaghetti!
Keto Spaghetti
After serving a large group of people (more than half of them non-lowcarbers) spaghetti dinners made with Keto Spaghetti this past week (to RAVE reviews), everyone agreed this great product deserved an extra spotlight here!

The folks at Keto Foods have created a huge winner with their
Keto Spaghetti and we think you're gonna want to keep this one in your pantry at all times. It cooks very much like any spaghetti (and comes packaged the same way.) We found it best when timed at 8 minutes from it being immersed in boiling water.

What surprised me the first time I ever tasted it, was that right out of the pan (before butter or sauce was put on it), it wasn't bad at all... no heavy soy taste... no, it was actually really good. And by the time we added a sauce, it was quite delicious. We were all commenting that if it weren't a reputable brand like Keto, we might be questioning the carb count on this stuff. It was that good. We tried it with several sauces including a classic meat and mushroom tomato-based Italian sauce (our favorite), an alfredo sauce (superb with diced chicken), and with a carbonara sauce (with plenty of bacon!) The spaghetti hold the sauces really well and doesn't get gummy or fall apart.

A single serving according to the package (it comes in 8-oz boxes) is 1/6 of the box and comes in at 5 effective grams of carbohydrate (after fiber.) Many of us found the serving size a little small and felt 1/4 of the package was more appropriate as a main dish. That would make it 7 1/2 grams of carb per serving... still very very reasonable!

If you've been missing spaghetti and need to keep those carbs down, this is the one. It's even low calorie (at 110 calories per serving)... well, until you add those rich sauces [grin].

If you're one of those people who really love "leftover spaghetti" (we are)... we checked that out too. We stored about a cup of cooked Keto Spaghetti in the Italian tomato sauce overnight in Tupperware, and reheated it the next day in the microwave to find it was still delicious 24 hours later. In some ways, even better since the sauce had truly "married" itself to the pasta.

Keto Spaghetti is available from netrition and from The Low Carb Connoisseur.
