Forgive me that this doesn't give amounts . . . next time I make it I'll try to remember & write down what I'm doing. For now, just say half-a-box of spaghetti with mebbe a cupful of sauce, and don't be stingy with the cheese - use enough of each to make a nice substantial layer.

Dreamfields Pasta Bake

Dreamfields spaghetti (deduct a full two minutes from the designated cooking time; remove from heat and drain immediately)
low carb spaghetti sauce*
small curd cottage cheese
shredded mozzarella cheese
diced green onions for garnish

*I mix maybe half a jar of Bertoli alfredo sauce with a little plain tomato sauce. Toss sauce with cooked pasta until coated.

Layer cooked/coated pasta with cheeses & bake until cheese begins to brown. Sprinkle with diced green onion.

And if you like onion, don't stint on the diced greenies . . . both my husband & I think these little onions really "make" this dish.

Did you find the Dreamfields pasta at Kroger? If you are having trouble finding it, visit their website and I believe they have a zip code locater and you can find out who carries it where you live. I do know that Netrition sells it and it is a couple dollars cheaper than most grocery stores. I live near Columbus, Ohio and I do know that most Walmart Super Centers do no carry it. Happy cooking!:)

I just found Dreamfields in the wal-mart I shop at in Atlanta. They had spaghetti, linguine and penne.

That is great news! I wish my local Walmart would carry it. I did find it at Giant Eagle Supermarket. It was on sale there and I bought several boxes of it. I don't use it that much and my Mom doesn't care for it and she has no reason for needing to watch her carbs. Honestly, she doesn't know anything about carbs! When I talk to her about watching my carbs, I am not sure she understands!!

So is it workin' for you, Jason? Any little spikes at all?
Well I said I was going to make it last night but didn't. I forgot the onions. I am making it tomorrow night for sure and will let you know how yummy it was, LOL. I am thinking about browning some xtra lean ground beef to the sauce before I layer it.

I am surprised I found it at Wal-Mart here. For such a big of a metropolitan area as Atlanta, the store I shop at doesn't carry as many of the same brands as the one back home in Alabama. But, it was cheaper than Kroger even though they didn't have angel hair which I prefer over spahgetti. If they made thin spaghetti it would be perfect, LOL.

Your mother sounds like alot of people I know. Hopefully, they will never really have to watch the carbs! My non-diabetic sister has been low-carbing since way before I was diagnosed. She was happy to go with me to my initial diabetes classes. (Prob to get more low-carb tips and tricks, LOL.)

Oh heck yeah! It would work well with beef or diced chicken . . . I expect sausage would even be good. This is one very "tinkerable" recipe! :D :D :D

Shanny,

Thanks for the recipe.... and thank God for Dreamfields. It allows me to enjoy pasta dishes without the fear of having my BG go sky high. Of course, like anything, I still have to practice "moderation" even when I eat pasta. :boink:

Pastor Paul:D

Isn't it incredible?! And it's all due to the exact cooking time. So happy it works for you, Jason!
