FREE Dreamfields Lasagna Recipe & Giveaway


Dreamfields is giving away a FREE CASE of lasagna to a lucky winner!

It's no secret to regular readers of my blog that I am a huge fan and supporter of Dreamfields pasta. There is nothing on the market today that even comes close to matching the taste and texture of these slow digestible carb noodles and I highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys Italian dishes and following a controlled-carb diet. At just 5g digestible carbs per serving, you just can't beat it!

Because of the incredible demand for the great-tasting Dreamfields pasta, the company decided to roll out a brand new version of their popular pasta for Spring 2006 -- LASAGNA! WOO HOO! These lasagna noodles will give you the familiar ready-to-layer product just waiting to be put in a baking dish for a taste you thought you'd never be able to enjoy again when you started livin' la vida low-carb low-carb. Now you CAN!

Dreamfields Lasagna noodles have ridges which will hold your favorite tomato sauce, meat, cheese and other ingredients to make the best lasagna dish ever! To help you get in the spirit of making low-carb lasagna, here is a special exclusive Dreamfields recipe that will have your tastebuds breakdancing for more! :)

Jimmy,
As much as I want to try some of this stuff that's not available in my country, I don't think you'll ship it down under to Australia! :)

Maybe next time you could say this offer is available to US and Canada only or something ?

I'm sure you have a large international readership!

Let me know if I can enter!

Thanks!

Hey Dave,

Dreamfields did NOT stipulate that it is for US and Canada only, so send me an e-mail with your full name and e-mail address and I'll send you the info about how to enter the contest. GOOD LUCK!

Also, you might check with Jason at LO-CARB U to see if he would ship to Australia. You never know unless you ask. :)

THANKS, buddy! SEE YA!

I have read elsewhere that Dreamfields products can lose their lower carb profile if cooked more than once or if they are overcooked. The recipe calls for cooking the noodles per the package directions followed by assembly and then baking. This may result in more carbs digested than anticipated.

To overcome this problem when making Mac & Cheese with Dreamfields I add butter, cheese, spices, and a little cream directly to the hot, drained Dreamfields elbows. It works extremely well and makes the dish incredibly easy.

Thanks for the offer, but it only enters your email address into the contest, not the addresses of the people you forward it to. Even if I click on it, it shows you as the person entering - not me.

Hey Ociana,

Sorry about that, I'm not sure what happened with the entry. Because this happened, I'm gonna make a deal with my readers.

If I am selected as the winner of the Dreamfields contest, then I will throw all the names of those who entered through my blog in a hat and select one of you as my winner.

I had no idea that my name would show up in the e-mails I sent. I apologize for that and vow to make it right for you to have a chance to win if I win.

THANKS for your faithful readership at my blog!

I have read elsewhere that Dreamfields products can lose their lower carb profile if cooked more than once or if they are overcooked.

Or if cooked in a acidic sauce. I'd recommend cooking the noodles in water and then putting the dish together and baking just long enough to melt the cheese and heat the other ingredients.
