Low Carb Pasta

I think I have eaten every version of what a pasta replacement might be. I could list them all here, but I’ll not because this company, and they don’t know me, they don’t pay me, has cracked the Keto pasta code.  I’ve had and have a stock of their fettuccine, elbow and penne noodles.  The…
