Spagetti bog for dinner here... . just wondering if there is something other than pasta that I can have...

I use these options:

- Shirataki noddles (no carbs)
- No noodles at all, just serve in a bowl and top with cheese
- Serve with added low carb veges to give more bulk, eg: some sauteed celery or spinach, mixed in, or used as a base

I use Butter beans, they sort of look like penne pasta and give me the illusion of having pasta with mince sauce
