FiberGourmet Light Pasta,
Short-Cut Fettuccine

PER SERVING (2 oz. uncooked): 130 calories, 1g fat, 120mg sodium, 42g carbs, 20g fiber, 2g sugars, 7g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

How could the FG folks possibly improve their low-calorie, fiber-packed pasta, you ask? By adding even more fiber and hacking it up a bit before bagging it. Their Classic flavor now comes in bite-sized noodle bits -- so no more embarrassing extra-long noodles hanging from your chin at mealtime. Yay! And this stuff contains a whopping TWENTY grams of fiber (previously their Whole Wheat was the only option with a full twenty grams -- the others have 18g fiber). These shorties are also a bit firmer than the regular-sized noodles. Click here for a list of stores that sell FiberGourmet's stuff, or here for online ordering.
DANIELLE'S COMMENTS: Personally, I almost never eat pasta. If your journaling and keeping track of your calories, you realize that even a small serving of pasta contains way too many calories and carbs. It's not worth it. FiberGourmet pasta has awesome ingredients, especially the FIBER! Go for it, in moderation!
