View Full Version : Soy based pasta (?)

07-06-2005, 04:11 PM
Has anyone seen or tried soy based pasta? I saw it in the grocery store today. It has 28g of protein and only 18g of carbs in a serving. There's 6 servings in a 1# bag.

If you've tried it, how does it taste? I'm just try to get some reviews before I drop 3 bucks on a bag of pasta. Still, it's only $0.02 per gram or protein.

How many cals in a serving? Sounds badass.

I've had it before.

If I'm remembering correctly, it's not bad, but is a bit chewier than normal pasta and does taste somewhat different. With marinara and a bit of cheese, though, I thought it was decent.

Yah, I buy it every now and then from Trader Joe's. It's not the greatest thing in the world, but it definately feeds my pasta cravings. B&I is right, somewhat chewier (aka harder) than normal pasta. I throw some fat free parmesan on top of it and it's just fine.

a nice mushroom sauce if you like mushrooms!

That can work too, though you'll pretty much be replacing the carbs you're trying to eliminate in the first place =P.

I'm not that worried about my carbs.
