This is great if you can stomach the texture. For me, it was too much like that of squid. In fact, it has that kind of smell when you open the packet... It has zero flavour so perfect if you want it to take on spice flavours. I wouldn't buy it again, but it certainly does the job as a filler without any carbs (even if the packets are smaller than expected).
I eat pretty much anything, but I could not stomach this pasta! Firstly it does not look anything like the packaging, it is white, slimy, rubbery, smells awfuls and its just vial tasting! I bought this as well as the noodle version and they are equally disgusting. Do not buy this. Not eatable and waste of money.Goes Well With:Bin
These noodles come out of the pack slippery and slimy, with an odd smell (to anyone not familiar with konjac noodles). The trick is to rinse them well, and dry fry them in a non-stick pan without oil to improve the texture so that they are more like pasta cooked "al dente". Unfortunately, because of their shape, the inside of the noodle never touches the pan so the texture remains quite glutinous and does not absorb sauce as well as they should. The spaghetti or fettuccine are much better IMO as you can fry them for quite some time until you get the texture you desire. Goes Well With:Thicker, cream or cheese based sauces - marinara or oil based sauces may not stick to the noodles as well.
I was very much looking forward to this when I made my purchase, however when it arrived I was a little disappointed. Its a good low calorie, high fibre, bulk food to add into your diet and great if you are on a cut but it is no different from the zero rice/noodles in taste or appearance and it doesn't resemble penne pasta in my opinion. The packaging is misleading.
I've tired a large variety of products from Myprotein and I've been really pleased with everything I had received up until these came through my door. I had tried the Konjac flour noodles and rice and enjoyed both of those as a side for various dishes. I found the noodles and rice not too dissimilar to the real deal but these are something else. I don't see myself as a fussy eater in the slightest but I couldn't even bring myself to eat one mouthful of these Mypenne things. If I had a dog, I still wouldn't feed them to it. Goes Well With:The bin.
I bought this with high hopes as I have never had a bad product from my protein & absolutely love pasta so thought I was into a winner! Unfortunately this product is not good at all. For starters it looks nothing like the pasta on the front of the box, (I understand it's not going to be like normal pasta..) however it is white and has a very odd smell and the texture is very odd and rubbery. Would not recommend.
Strange texture, funny smell, no taste ... When you rinse it under cold water, smell disappears. Perfect with spicy sauces. It's a great filler (with no carbs).Goes Well With:Peri Peri Chicken, Thai Chicken, any spicy sauce.
no calories no carbs add spices soaks it all in for great flavours filling great with anything, meat sauce great priceGoes Well With:meat, veg sauce, spice anything! make your own meal creation!
I was hoping these would be okay to just fill out my meals. They have the texture of calamari and smell vile. If you're reading this the same as I did thinking 'it can't be that bad' it is and they're not exactly cheap.Goes Well With:the bin
Being on a keto diet, I decided to give these a try. I cooked them as per instruction however they are utterly inedible. It’s like trying to eat white worms. They have no colour or taste. Very disappointed Goes Well With:Nothing
Although I like this product, the advertisement is very misleading and nothing like the picture. This pasta isn't tubes, it's flat penne and is jelly like and chewy. So when it arrived i was disappointed but it wasn't as bad as i thought once i'd heated it up in the microwave, added some chicken and pasta sauce. If you can stomach the texture then it's great but it does take some getting used to. I'm currently cutting my weight after bulking and was struggling to keep my carb intake low until i found this pasta. It really helps with my diet and means I can still eat my muesli for for breakfast, rice and chicken for lunch as well as have a glass of wine in the evening with it fitting my macros so for me its a win win! Goes Well With:Chicken with Pasta Bake Sauce Tuna Pesto Sauce
The picture on the packaging is misleading. The texture , taste and smell are nothing like pasta. Would not recommend this product. Goes Well With:Nothing
This is the first and only product I've ever had from myprotein which has been bad. The texture was awful and it tasted salty and was generally not nice. I couldn't eat it.
I like others it seems assumed that it would look something like the picture!! So wrong... it's like slimy worms, with an incredible smell of fish on first opening... cooked as per instructions thinking it will taste better than it looks or smells... ended up in the bin, so chewy it was like eating squid - which I hate! Even my husband who can pretty much eat anything disliked it. What a waste of money Goes Well With:The bin
I have been using products from my protein and have loved everything else but I couldn't stomach this. The box sady is misleading as it is a photo of real pasta this is solid tubes of milky white rubber. I knew I wasn't going to be the same as pasta clearly but I couldn't even look at this with out gagging. I was really gutted. I hate to complain so a silver lining is the rice and noodles are so much better so I would recommend those foe a low carb and calorie diet Goes Well With:Erm, nothing. But get the noodles instead
I love pasta and bolognaise sauce but being on a low carb diet I can't eat pasta. Thought I'd give the MyProtein Penne a go. Other than the shape it doesn't look like pasta. It's pure white not yellow and it doesn't have the same texture. That said, mix it in with bolognaise meat sauce or the sauce of your choosing and it does the job. You actually feel like you've eaten pasta. The individual portions make it easy to use at home or at work, wherever there's a microwave. Goes Well With:Any pasta sauce
Great low calorie substitute, boil for 5 minutes then fry in a dry pan for another 3-5 minutes for best results. 100g of this is a lot less that 100g of pasta so not really a meal's worth. Has a rubbery texture like squid but as someone who loves squid this is fine. Rinse before cooking as it smells when opened.Goes Well With:Tomato and chilli pasta sauce
it's not terrible but it's not the best either. has a rubbery like texture and doesn't have much taste but the portions are good size and mixes well with any sauce. not sure if i would buy again though
Thought I would try and go low carb using these products. I tried the first pack and just the smell made me feel sick tried to eat some..... just didn't happen, mixed it with some sauce and it was still awful I ended up giving it away and even they couldn't eat it!Goes Well With:Somthing with alot of flavor to cover it!
My Pasta (the whole range) is amazing, but it's not pasta and that's what people need to realise. It's a fantastic substitute, but it is made from a yam and will have a rubbery texture. Either you deal with the texture and still have your pasta meals, or you don't eat pasta, simple as. I love it and as an Italian I can't deal with no pasta. It's a really great way to eat all of the sauces and things that I'm used to without worrying about the carbs. If you have an issue with the smell or slight taste, boil for 3-5 minutes and then fry in a dry pan until it starts to make popping noises. It gets rid of all the moisture and allows a slightly firmer texture and better absorption of sauces. Goes Well With:Any Pasta sauce in the whole world!
