I bought this hoping it would be a good low-carb substitute for pasta, but I found it hideous. The smell was extremely off-putting, though, as the bag recommends, boiling it removes most of the scent. I ate most of the bag, but never bought another. Once was enough for me.

I'd recommend brown rice pasta. It's much healthier than wheat pasta and tastes almost the same, it's also a lot easier to prepare than this tofu variety.

You're supposed to boil them up first to get rid of the tofu texture, and then dry them out using a noodle sieve (or whatever the heck that thing is caleld that you drain the water off with). I'd never in my life touch a real piece of pasta (talk about fattening), but this stuff is amazing and they sell it all over the place here in NYC.

This is a product where you really love it or really hate it. I bought 25 bags of this miracle-stuff since it wasn't offered anywhere even close to me. My honest opinion, these noodles were horrible! The texture was (to me) like swallowing slimy fish parts. I gave away the other bags to people that were interested in trying it (I wanted to see what I was missing) and the consensus was the same. Again, that was our opinion...try it! You might just like it!
