No recipe today, but an exciting announcement. I was shopping this weekend and I finally found Dreamfields lasagna in my store! It was $2.99 a box, not cheap, but worth it to find a product where you can make lasagna with only about 10 net carbs per servings. For those who don't know what all the fuss is about, Dreamfield's makes low carb pasta that tastes just like regular pasta. That probably doesn't matter to some people, but to those who are trying to eat the lower carb, lower glycemic way, this product means that lasagna days are here again! I have a great recipe for Chicken Lasagna that I'll be sharing soon.
I don't understand all the science behind it, but here is what the Dreamfield's web site says to explain how the make their pasta lower in carbs:
Dreamfields Pasta is lower in digestible carbohydrates. What that means is that while the total number of carbohydrates is the same as typical pasta, our unique blend of dietary fibers and proteins protects all but about 5 grams of these carbohydrates from being digested. These protected, or "controlled," carbohydrates pass to the colon where they provide the health benefits of dietary fiber.
Of course I bought three boxes. When I got home I made some lasagna, not really following a recipe. I used some of my pasta sauce in the freezer from last summer, some frozen roasted tomatoes, mozarella cheese and Italian sausage. I was very happy with how it tasted, but not that happy with how the photo turned out. I'll make some blog-worthy lasagna soon with a good photo and share the recipe.
If you still can't find it in a store near you, here's a link to where you can buy Dreamfield's pasta online.
