Dreamfields Low-Carb Rotini Greek Salad


Dreamfields pasta makes this traditional dish a low-carb one

It's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of Dreamfields low-carb pastas. Why even mess with regular pasta that contains up to 50g carbs per serving when you can enjoy the same great taste and texture of pasta with just 5g digestible carbs? I'm NEVER going back again!


Chef Antonio Cecconi is an Italian cooking genius

When it comes to pasta recipes, nothing beats a great Greek salad. Master chef Antonio Cecconi created this amazing dish using Dreamfields pasta that has a mere 6g digestible carbs in it. Savor every delicious bite as you stay on your low-carb lifestyle while enjoying a great-tasting low-carb rotini Greek salad. Mmmmm!

Has anyone been able to find the Dreamfield's Rotini? I have access (through different stores) to the lasagna, penne, and macaroni but I have yet to see the Rotini. If anyone has seen it in the Atlanta Metro area I would be interested in hearing from you!

Thanks,
Melanie

You mean you actually find it in STORES?! Lucky you, Melanie! :)

I order from Low-Carb Connoisseur since it's not found anywhere in my area. They can get the Rotini to you fast since they are based in SC.

Yes indeed, Jimmie, I can get it. Ok, I'll quit my whining and go order it from LCC. I love them and have a coupon for them. :)
