    Almond flour pasta?

    Primal Fuel
    Has anyone ever tried making pasta out of almond flour? You could top with meat sauce for protein.

    Rice noodles would be easier (as in easily bought) and healthier

    Nut flours should be consumed in pretty limited amounts. You'll get used to not eating pasta. I don't want it at all any more.

    Spaghetti squash is good. So is shredded zucchini. Also broccoli slaw that is sauteed for a long time tastes great.

    It's bad enough eating baked almond flour. The last thing this forum needs is more recipes made with that crap. If you need a pasta substitute, look into spaghetti squash or kelp noodles. Both are perfectly paleo. You'll get used to it. Grandma made crabs and spaghetti for Christmas and I prepped myself mentally for days and had my heart set on eating it for the first time in 9 months. Then I saw there was fried cabbage and the pasta didn't look so good anymore. I ate fried cabbage with meatballs, sausage the crabmeat tomato gravy. Much better than pasta. It goes away real quick. This is coming from a South Jersey Italian that ate pasta at least twice a week his entire life and good bread with every meal.

    Like Choco said, there are tons of vegetable substitutes you can use. Once you have a zucchini "noodle" lasagna, you'll wonder why anyone bothers with regular noodles. So much better!

    I prefer spaghetti squash over pasta now. I never thought I would and now I can't imagine eating noodles.
