My sister is doing South Beach, which still has a few too many carbs for me, but found this recipe on All Recipes and used it with the Dreamfields pasta. She said it was really good and easy and no flour. I bought some Dreamfields and am going to try it and see what it does to my BG. Hopefully not much 'cuz I love comfort food. yeah

1 (12 oz.) package macaroni (or any pasta...I'm going to try rotini)
1 egg
2 cups milk
2 TBS. butter, melted
2 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (I would think you could mix cheeses here if you wanted)
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 30 degrees F (175 C.) Lightly grease a 2 qt. baking dish. In a large pot of salted water, lightly boil the pasta for about according to package directions to al dente (slightly chewy). (The recipe says until half cooked but I prefer my pasta a little more done than that.) Whisk the egg and milk together in a large cup. Add butter and cheese to the egga and milk. Stir well. Place the lightly cooked macaroni in the prepared baking dish. Pour the egg and cheese liquid over the macaroni, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and stir well. Press the mixture evenly around the baking dish. Baked uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the top is brown.

It says 3 servings, but that would be 3 pretty big servings. My sis says the 3 of them only ate about a third of it. Let me know how it is!! I'll be trying it soon myself. :-)

I made this recipe- it was my first try at 'diabetic' mac and cheese. It was a lot more watery than my usual but tasted very good. It makes a lot. I never eat a whole Dreamfields portion of pasta- I think I may have finally trained myself to actually eat smaller amounts -lol.
 
Once I started to use the konjac flour- I went back to my origianl recipe- but use Hood Low Carb milk with the konjac flour for my white sauce.

I just realized it has all that milk in it. I might try using cream (less than the milk) and a little of the konjac flour and see how it works. I'll let you know.
