Default Rotini

Hi all,
Wondering about the IP Tomato Basil Rotini. It is not on my paperwork from my coach and I had seen some of Chef Verati's cool recipes using it so I am interested. Is it restricted? My coach says she does have it in stock. Why is it not on the forms??

It is unrestricted. It is one of the newer products.

Be aware that although it is unrestricted, it IS also one of the higher cal/carb unrestricted items.

Are you sure it's unrestricted? I had my first appointment last night and the assistant in the office said she thought it counted as my restricted for the day?? I hope it's not! I don't plan to eat it everyday but hate thinking that when I do, I can't have a treat that day (bar, chips, etc)

According to the Ideal Protein literature, it is UNRESTRICTED. Untrained (or poorly trained) coaches or salespeople may not know and only go by calories or carbs.

So confusing! It's honestly making me doubt my coach! I have a friend that is a coach in another state and she said it is non restricted as well. Just trying to start off on the right foot here!

Just made the best lunch with the rotini and thought I would share

Saute zucchini and slices mushrooms with a little cooking spray and chopped garlic. Then add chopped spinach and a tablespoon or so of diced tomato. Add in cooked pasta with a little of the cooking water. Saute adding some EVOO, vinegar, green onion, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Let sauce thicken and dig in

I just tried the rotini for the first time and I love it, it is a great way to change up and feel like you are eating a real meal. I can't wait to play around with veggies and flavors, like asparagus, eggplant, broccoli, etc. Also would be good maybe to use one of the wf dressings as a sauce or with some ip friendly peanut sauce using wf products.... Next, I might try it with shredded chicken or pork, wf ranch and franks hot buffalo sauce.. yummy

I make a ground turkey meat sauce with the rotini. Pasta and meat sauce is so comforting! I use tomato paste, chopped tomato, peppers, mushrooms, onions (toss them in at the end so that they don't carmelize), and tons of seasoning.

Yummy ideas ladies! I'm off to WI this afternoon and was considering adding the Rotini to my pantry this time.

I wonder if it's unrestricted due to the new "resistant starch" science (some starches resist digestion so that some of the carb/calories cannot be used).

If so, the useable calorie/carb count may be lower than what appears on the label.
