I have yet to make pasta for myself as a main dish since starting to lose weight. But like others said, veggies and protein are key. I occasionally use ONE serving of corn pasta or rice noodles (I'm allergic to wheat) in stir-fries or broth-based soups - the veggies, broth, and/or protein are plenty to fill me up.
I'm also planning on making myself some kind of Thai peanut-lime rice noodle thing this week (as a treat), which I'll have as a side dish to a large salad (no dressing on the salad because I don't really like salad dressing.)

I just had an epiphany. Hubby asked me to make pasta tonight. I looked in the cupboard and found cappellinig and linguini (my faves!) and some ziti (blah). So I decided to make the ZITI! There's no way I'm going to overeat ziti because I don't like the size and texture so much. I just realized that I'm not addicted to pasta.... I'm addicted to twirling noodles on a fork!

I can SO relate to this. Back when I did eat pasta, I always would eat much more the angel hair or spaghetti than the penne (least favorite) or other shaped, non-twirl-able pastas.

One serving does satisfy me, but only because I add a bunch of fresh spinach to it. Man does it fill me up. I add spinach to most main dishes that seem "small" to me. It's basically a free food, it's healthy, it's yummy, and it's really filling.

I'm not currently allowed pasta (or bread and potatoes for that matter) on my plan. I think going cold turkey was better than cutting back. This is my plan for when I hit maintenance - still wont keep dangerous foods in the house, reserve them for special occasions/dining out.

No, not at all. Since I'm eating lower carb and counting calories using fitness pal, I don't eat it right now. But when I do, its in alfredo sauce. I really am not a fan of spaghetti. I do like lasagna though and could eat 3 serving of any type of alfredo.

Full blood italian here and lemme tell you WE EAT PASTA! Ha I dont make it as often as my mother does cause my fiance gets bored with it. But I cant imagine not having a big ole bowl of pasta with my awesome homemade meat sauce. My nonnie taught me and my cousins how to make sauce so it is something I like a lot. But I prolly only make it once a month now I never realized I made it so little now till I wrote this

I'm having it tomorrow night for dinner. I CAN do just one serving but I usually end up having two - I just make sure I have the calories for it

Newleaf - Great! I think I just need to figure out the sauce amount. Seems I prefer more sauce when I bulk up the pasta with veggies. Or maybe I'll just get used to it

I love to see folks saying a serving should be a box, or half a box - glad I'm not the only one who thinks that!
