We all know that pasta can be high in points. I have found a perfect alternative to pasta with Al Dente Carba-Nada Fettuccine. It tastes just like the real deal. No weird texture, yet it is very low in points. I get it online at Amazon here. They sell them in a pack of 6 (10 oz) bags. It only takes a few minutes to cook and the best part is that you can have 1 1/2 cup cooked for 4 Freestyle smartpoints.
