Low Carb Pasta Recipes
I love pasta, so I am pretty serious about my low carb pasta recipes. Here are some alternatives and recipes to help quench your pasta cravings. If there is something missing on this list that you adore, please contact me so I can add it!
|Rutabaga can be turned into a low carb pasta recipe substitute. They also make a great potato substitute.
|Turnips are my current favorite in terms of mouth feel for a low carb pasta recipe substitute. They stay just firm enough and even have a similar color.
|Carrots and turnips combined can make a sweeter tasting version of a noodle/pasta substitute and give a good dash of color.
|Spaghetti squash (used here in a Chicken Noodle Soup recipe) is an awesome low carb pasta substitute and it gives it a sweet flavor.
|I use a veggie spiral noodle device to turn my veggies into various pastas.
|Check out my substitutions page for other low carb pasta options, such as shirataki noodles and you can check out all the veggie noodle recipes I have on this site by clicking here. Shirataki noodles helped me curb the urges when I first went low carb, but after awhile their rubbery taste didn’t satisfy. I like using vegetables as substitutes because it’s a healthier alternative, and you can trick your kids into eating more vegetables as well!
