    Ok so i'm starving and hubby offered to get me dominos (and i said no, shock, horror) so i thought i'd have pasta. So i make an good for you asda pasta carbonara, went to check the syns on the calulator. If i do it as dried pasta, its 1 syn but if you do it as a pasta pot, its 2.5!
    Can't quite figure out why, but what would you count it as?
    I'm more inclined to go with 1 syn because you have to cook it, like a pasta'n'sauce and i class a pasta pot as a just add water jobbie.

    That is really strange. Thought if you cooked pasta and sauce from a packet and just addded water with no butter or milk, that it was free on green and ee????

    Some pasta n sauce have syns. Hard to tell without knowing exactly which one it is. Why not ask on the syn query thread.

    I bought morrisons own pasta n sauce and it was something like 4 syns so i stick to batchelor's now.

    Sorry can't help you with the answer but if I ever get two outcomes and am unsure which is correct I use the higher one.

    I would rather accidentally use fewer syns than too many.

    It's best if you check syns online before using the calculator. Only use the calculator is the product isn't listed online.
