I love Dreamfields Pasta...Angel Hair con Tilapia

NO Cardboard Here!!

I normally try to stay away from promoting certain brands. I just cannot keep quiet about this pasta I found. It doesn't taste like cardboard. It tastes like regular pasta. Even my son who won't touch anything high fiber can't tell the difference. I found it on line first. Then I was able to find it locally at Kroger. They make all forms of pasta.

This pasta is made so that only a small portion of the carbs are digestible. Years of clinical research led to the development of Dreamfields Pasta. Like traditional pasta, Dreamfields contains 41 grams of carbohydrates per serving. However, its patent-pending formula and unique manufacturing process protects all but 5 grams of carbs in each serving (2 oz. dry) from digestion.

I wanted to share this yummy recipe I tried:

Angel Hair con Tilapia

1 box Dreamfields Angel Hair
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped green onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 cup julienne or thickly shredded carrots
1/2 to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper
1 cup (8 ounces) marinara sauce
2 tablespoons sliced fresh basil
1 pound tilapia fillets (2 to 4 fillets)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds

1.Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, parsley, garlic and carrots; stir well. Add red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
Continue cooking about 5 minutes, until onion is browned, stirring frequently. Add marinara sauce and fresh basil. Cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2.Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions.

3.Place tilapia fillets in skillet. Pour lemon juice and wine over fish. Cook 2 minutes; turn carefully with spatula. Continue cooking 2 minutes or until cooked through (fish flakes easily when tested with fork). Remove from heat. Remove fish from skillet. Cut into 1-inch wide pieces.

4.Drain pasta; toss pasta with sauce in skillet. Gently stir in fish. Top with Parmesan cheese and toasted almonds.

Makes 6 servings.

Note: To toast almonds, spread on rimmed baking pan. Place in 350°F oven 8 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven; cool completely.

    When you track the pasta do you count all the carbs??

    Dreamfields pasta is amazing. I heard that you cannot overcook it though, or it will lose the good carb count and move into "high" carb count. Either way, it is a lifesaver as a diabetic. Thank you for the recipe! I love tilapia.

    My family discovered Dreamfields several years ago when my father became diabetic. Now it's all we eat, and I actually got my boyfriend and his family to switch from regular, "Smart Start" and whole wheat pasta to Dreamfields :) Any idea as to the point value on Dreamfields?

    Thanks for the recipe, I've practically given up pasta because of the carbs. I will definitely look for this brand.
