Low Fat Ezekiel Pasta
I don't know how many of you guys have tried Ezekiel 4:9 "low glycemic" Penne, but let me tell you, it's good stuff.
The other day, for my postworkout meal/carbfest after my leg workout, I made some pasta that turned out really well.
Ezekiel 4:9 Penne pasta (1 box)
99 percent lean Ground Turkey from Sprouts
Walnut Acres' Organic fat free/low sodium Tomato & Basil Pasta Sauce
First, I boiled 4 quarts of water in a big pot and then added the Ezekiel pasta. I let it cook for about 5-6 minutes and then drained it and rinsed with cool water. While I was cooking the pasta, I sprayed a skillet with Pam and threw the ground turkey in and cooked it till there was no more pinkness to it. I added some pepper and a little bit of the pasta sauce to the turkey as it was cooking also. After that, I just mixed the ground turkey and pasta in the empty pasta pot and poured as much pasta sauce on top as I thought looked good. I didn't measure anything or take specific macros into account because I used this as a cheat meal. All that I know is it tastes really good for the ingredients used.

I love the Ezekial bread, so I was excited when I saw the pasta on the shelf. When I saw the price, I nearly jumped, though. Expensive as hell compared to Barilla Plus and other whole wheat or multigrain alternatives. I wish they'd drop the price a bit.

You should be able to cut the Ezekiel with standard whole wheat, to lessen the wallet crunch.

For example if I have a salad first then follow with a large cookie my blood sugar barely moves up...if I eat that cookie by itself that blood sugar goes way up.
I'm gonna try following your suggestion and create a pasta blend.

edit: need to pick up the pasta also - do they sell it a kroger?
