Lower Carb Mac'n Cheese
By Serves 12

This recipe uses terrific low carb pasta that I found at my local grocery store. It is remarkably good and has only 5g digestible carbs and 5g fiber. Compared to regular pasta with a whopping 43g carbs and only 2.5 g protein. To see if Dreamfields pasta is sold in your market go to for a store near you.

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.
