I’m here! I’m back! As is my newly repaired computer having survived an annoying virus. Thankfully my computer guy was able to save all my photos and files, and return a clean computer to me by the end of the weekend.
Oh happy days!
And happy tummy!
Let me explain…
When we were at the Sydney Good Food and Wine show recently, we walked past the Slim Pasta stand, and were intrigued.
Slim Pasta – a low carb, high fibre pasta made with a vegetable - konjac.
We bought the spaghetti, which contains oatmeal flour (ie so is wheat free but not gluten free) – although I understand that they have an angel hair version that is gluten free if you were wanting that option.
I used a packet of this pasta to throw together a quick dinner when our pantry and fridge supplies were running low over the weekend. So it certainly ended up being a hodge podge pasta.
But a delicious one nonetheless.
I was a little concerned that the packet might not yield enough for our two hearty appetites, but I served it alongside some steamed broccoli and it ended up being just about right.
Spaghetti with prawns, chilli, sausage and tomato.
Doused in parmesan cheese.
And gobbled with gusto.
I actually quite liked the texture of the pasta, which held together well. The nutrition stats are also likely to see me use this pasta more, in place of its carb-filled counterparts, when I am looking for a lighter pasta meal.
Particularly when a sneaky glass of red wine accompanies the meal…
What about you? Are you a computer wizard? Or do you leave it to the professionals, like me?
