I love pasta. It is always my go to favorite...almost any pasta dish. Pasta is also filled with carbs which you are supposed to avoid for health and weight reasons.

So how does one balance weight/health with their love of cards?

I have done macaroni and cheese with cauliflower instead of pasta. It was pretty good.

Actually, pasta is very tasteless and bland without the sauces that we add to it. I don't think it's the pasta so much as the sauces that we like. So, I found vegetable substitutes: shredded cabbage or spaghetti squash for spaghetti pasta, cauliflower for macaroni, etc.

I would love to try these. My aunt said she's been eating spaghetti squash instead of pasta. That sounds really good.
