Pasta, Noodles, Pesto, and Pasta Sauce

For the South Beach diet, notations after each recipe listing indicate Kalyn's opinion as to which phase of the diet that recipe can be used for.

If you'd like to browse for recipes in this category by photo, you can do that on my Pinterest board for Kalyn's Kitchen Pasta, Noodles, Pesto, and Pasta Sauce.





Baked Pasta Dishes
(Edit June 2011 - I recently discovered that when Dreamfields pasta is cooked longer than the specified time, re-cooked, or reheated,  it increases the glycemic index, so I am editing these recipes to reflect that.  Any recipe that uses Dreamfields is probably phase 3 if the pasta is cooked for a long time or reheated.  This does not apply to lasagna which is made differently.  You can of course use whole wheat pasta to make these for phase 2.)
