I love this product, it fills me up like normal pasta would, yet has almost no calories. My only advise is to ignore the fishy smell once the packet is opened and wash the pasta thoroughly in lots of fresh water. Use it like you would any other pasta.

I have recently tried the penne in the Slim Pasta range. When I opened it it smelt slightly fishy but i rinsed it through as instucted & then lightly fried it in a pan. I added tomato, chicken, onions, garlic, Stirring in soft cheese at the end and it tasted VERY similar to pasta (slightly like calamari texture i guess) but delicious! And with zero carbs or sugar i ate the whole bag ~ which kept me full for ages ~ with no guilt!

Have seen this advertised on shopping television and when it became available in H+B on offer I thought I'd give it a go. The staff member advised about the smell as I purchased and with the advert on selly-telly saying the same I was expecting to have to leave the house for an hour after I opened a packet. Not at all!! The first and second packets barely smelled at all and I had to stick my nose right in the pasta to even get a slight odour, very happy, if suprised. Admittedly, the smell can vary from packet to packet, similar with the rice and the tagliatelli, but run the product under a tap for 30 seconds and it's all gone, even the strongest smelling packet I've had.
Really is a great product for my healthy eating plan where I am calorie counting, if I have (like last night) a chicken breast, pesto and a packet of this for my tea, that's only 220 calories, and it is filling. Makes me choose where I can have my calories meaning my healthy eating and losing weight is much less restrictive. I do plan, however, to keep using this range once I am at target weight, and incorporate into every week.
The texture is a little different, but to be frank, I like it.
It's easy to heat, and the only real fault I can find is it is a 'little' costly, but then that's just not thinking clearly on my behalf to be honest, would I spend the same amount on a burger in a fast food place? Of course I would.
I really do love this product and it's range, when you think that a whole packet of this pasta is less calories than half an average sized apple.......

Low carb,high fibre,low calorie pasta - I'm on the atkins diet,so this is perfect! Product smells fishy when opened from brime water bag,so lots of washing. Tastes really good,but a kind of jelly like texture - like texture of seafood sticks. For best value buy on the buy one get 2nd for a penny - great value then!

The packing of this product that was delivered states it is 9 calories per 100 grams. I am absolutely ectstatic about this product. Being someone who likes to eat a lot the fact I can eat 600 grams of this product at a cost of 54 calories is a dream come true. Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant product.
