Pasta Alternatives

Eating processed, white-carb heavy pasta may not fit into your dietary lifestyle very well.  But, who doesn't get a hankering for an Italian dish?  I'm not one to spend the money on processed, wheat-free pastas, and although the following alternatives may be just as expensive in some cases, they're healthier.

Quinoa - just make sure you soak it in water and whey, lemon juice, or vinegar.

Spaghetti Squash

Buckwheat (not the flour, of course, the whole buckwheat)


A vegetable variety, stir fried or steamed

Do you have any other pasta substitute ideas?

Do you make your own pasta?

  1. We had zucchini "noodles" for dinner last night. Peeled the zuke then shaved "noodles". Added the noodles to boiling water for 2-3 minutes then served with sauce on top.
