Dreamfields works for some and not for others. Make sure to check
everytimeas your own ability to handle it can vary.
Some of us make things with non-pastat that give one the sense of havign
it. I do lasagna using either horizontaly sliced eggplant or zuchinni(or
a mixture) as the pasta with my fillings and sauce and ceese alternating
with the vegetable slices that I have softened in the microwave. I also
do a string beans, browned hot italian saudage and sauce that I use as a
main dish. microwave whole string beans, brown the saucage in fat slices
on the stove top and then combine with teh string beans and sauce and cook
in the microwave until nice and hot. You can also use spaghetti squash
which also serves as a bace for sauce adn cheese.
Just some suggestions to handle that pasta craving.
