    I have tried a lot of pasta alternatives. For what this is, it's not horrible. Sadly, it's not that great, either.

    I made sure to cook this pasta according to the directions. However, it still had a very chewy, fiber-y / rubbery texture. However, to be fair, toppings make a huge difference.

    All in all, it is sufficient and does not spike one's blood sugar. It is also incredibly filling.

    I cooked up one serving (one bag) of the Ciao Carb penne pasta last night. The directions said to boil it in water for 15 minutes. I live near Denver, at an attitude of 6,800 feet, so I expected it would take longer to cook than the directions stated. After tasting it several time, and cooking it for 30 minutes, I finally pulled the pasta out, as the rest of dinner was getting cold. I served it with some low carb alfredo sauce on it. The texture was just ok. Very aldente still, but we were able to eat the pasta. I'm wondering if I cook it for 30 minutes next time, add in the sauce, and let it sit overnight. Maybe that will help the pasta soften up a bit more. Will try again and let you know how it goes.
