Whenever I try a product like this I'm very open minded, it's too easy for people to look down at something in disgust - 'What do you mean fat free cheese doesn't taste like full fat cheese?!?' - at the end of the day it's zero calorie 'pasta', an alternative to an extremely carb dense food, so as I say, open minded. Firstly, it absolutely is not the shape of penne whatsoever, at first feeling it through the packet it felt like it had been smashed up and broken into little pieces, in a way that is true, because each piece is more like a length ways slice of an actual tube of penne (in short, there is no hole), this was consistent throughout so I determined this is indeed how it is supposed to look. Secondly, the cooking time is very much up for debate, I have a couple more packets which I will cook most likely for twice the amount of time that is recommended in the instructions as this first batch was not to the consistency I was expecting. I expected chewiness, which I got, but there was something else I cannot describe which I can only hope changes with me altering the cooking time. There's next to no taste, so in that sense it's a very good pasta replacement if you are an able sauce maker. Overall I would say it's neither bad nor good, can't imagine I will buy it again unless I'm in the deep end of a cut as it would make do for a no carb meal, but it isn't especially desirable, the main issue I take with it is how far away from penne it actually is. If you are in the real world when it comes to 'zero' foods, you'll probably have a similar view to me, which is that it does what it's there to do.Goes Well With:Low fat cheese or tomato sauce, thickness and a generous serving of sauce is key.
