    They're great Maxie... very filling & soak up the taste of a sauce completely. If you get them make sure you rinse them before using them, they're a bit smelly when they come out of the packet.

    And make sure they're not the tofu ones.. xx

    Thanks, not tried them yet but my boyfriend is on Atkins-style diet due to his arthritis (he has a starch allergy bizarrely, which exacerbates his condition) and misses pasta.

    Where do you get them from? Saw them on sugarfreesheila.com but she's in America and was wondering if you could get them at Tesco or just online?

    Thanks :)

    I've only found them online (when in stock!!) don't buy them from ebay they are stupidly expensive!!

    They are more rubbery than pasta but certainly work as a substitute. x

    Thanks :) They didn't seem to pricey at the site I linked to, it's just always nicer to avoid the delivery charges :)

    He is totally banned from ANY refined carbs so hope they might almost replace pasta for him!

    Thanks :)

    You're lucky being so close Jim. I just ordered some, if they're good I'll get my sister to get some in the Chinese supermarket in Bristol.

    I can't wait now :)

    You can get them from holland & Barrett, they also do a pasta shape and a packet of rice. They're quite expensive though at £2.50 per pack for two people x

    I've not tried these noodles (going hunting for then monday!) but was wondering if this gadget would be any good, makes noodles out of courgettes, (maybe even celeriac), anything really...
