    Soy based pasta (?)

    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.

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    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.

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