Fiber Gourmet has been the talk of the health world due to it's claims of 40% fewer calories than standard pasta (Fiber Gourmet has 130 per serving). What's more? One serving has a whooping 18 grams of fiber and it only amounts to 2 Weight Watchers Points. With statistics like these, I had to give it a shot.
I am always hesitant when it comes to new foods that claim wonders, but I put it to the test last night using my dad's tried-and-true old fashioned meatball recipe. The pasta is prepared just as you would any pasta and it's done in about 9 minutes. Aside from noticing a teeny bit of texture differences, I think it tasted just like regular pasta -- My husband could not tell a difference at all. I'm sure an Italian grandmother would not touch this stuff with a ten foot pole, but if you like to have pasta from time to time, then you should definitely give it a shot. You really can't beat that fiber content -- I give it two thumbs up!
To try for yourself, visit FiberGourmet.com. The only caveat right now is that it seems you can only buy it in bulk which is 12 bags (5 servings per bag) for $40, which ends up being a little over $3 per bag.
