    Are kelp noodles fishy smelling/tasting?

      No they're not "funky" at all -- pretty tasteless really.

      On the topic of things to use for noodles:
      I've also used 'enotaki' (sp?) mushrooms before. You can pull them apart like string cheese.
      And check this out Pork Skin Noodles « From Belly to Bacon

        The point of paleo is to skip processed foods. This product misses that point. 'Nuff said.

        "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

          This company in Colorado has gluten free, grain free pasta made from almond flour. Supposed to be good, but I have not tried it. For those looking for your pasta fix, this might be the least offensive option.

            Expensive noodles but an interesting recipe and intriguing product. Thanks for this info. There's a store about 15 miles from me that carries it. I'll have to check it out. Good on ya!

              Meh. I have tried a few different "spaghetti swaps" but really...Ugh, just throw the sauce over some vegetables and be done with it. Pasta is very plain anyway - would you eat it solo/dry? No. Just make a kickass sauce and throw it over zucchini, peppers and onion. My favorite is fantastic meat sauce (tomato sauce, ground meat, garlic, onions, seasoning) thrown over sauteed vegetables (whatever I have around. Anything will absorb the sauce flavor. Why add almond and quinoa crap to a simple meal?)

                Seriously.

                I like to steam a bunch of vegetables and add the sauce on top. The sauce will prvide the fat to get all the nutrients you need if you add olive oil to it or add undrained ground beef or pork to it (I wouldn't add both the undrained meat AND the olive oil or the sauce constancy gets a bit messed up).

                A good combination of veggies I have used is:

                Mustard greens
                Turnip greens
                Kale
                Asparagus
                Okra (if in season)
                Various bell peppers of all colors
                A spicy pepper or two of your choice

                That mix provides a good mix of nutrients and flavors. Just make sure you steam the leafy greens only for a minute or two since the hot pasta sauce will continue to cook the greens.

                Or you could sauté some eggplant in butter or coconut oil and toss the pasta sauce on top of the slab.

                  Seriously, just put something like an arrabbiata sauce over seared chicken and vegetables or white rice and you'll never want pasta again. The white rice may be a taboo for some, but the veggies alone are delicious if you can't or don't want to eat rice

                  Also, isn't paleo pasta kinda like our version of vegan bacon? I believe Ron Swanson sums up my opinion of vegan bacon nicely.

                  Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own experience.

                  In the mind of the beginner, there are many possibilities; in the mind of the expert, there are few.

                    I love Ron Swanson. Works for the government and can't stand government. Loves meat. Classic.

                    Great clip.

                      I don't care much for rice pasta. I don't mind putting sauce over squash, but my husband isn't always keen on that and I have a grandchild or two that wont eat squash, so I've resigned myself to wheat pasta, I started buying einkorn pasta from Jovial Foods

                          personally, since there are no spaghetti squash (sigh i miss them so) available here, i grate longways (turns into nice long strands) zucchini and serve that under my bolognese.
