Looks tasty, Sue! Please use caution when counting net carbs with diabetes, however. Each person is affected differently & there has not been any solid 3rd party research on this particular pasta, the data available suggests that it still causes blood sugar spikes typical of any pasta.
Good advice Jessica.
