I’ve been dabbling with a lot of keto-friendly brands lately, mainly because it would be great to be able to eat bread and pasta again without all the carbs. I’ve tried a few cauliflower-based brands that I wasn’t crazy about, but this weekend, I discovered the motherlode of all things low-carb: THIN SLIM FOODS.
GUYS. Check them OUT. I have never been so excited for a package to arrive on my doorstep. I tried the bread, pasta, and everything bagels, and they were all DELISH.
I haven’t tried their chocolate products because they contain sugar alcohols, which really upset my stomach, but their breads and pasta don’t contain any sugar products (and their bread and bagels are ZERO net carbs. YEAH.)
I have a feeling this is going to be the first of many keto-friendly recipes containing their products, but I started with this one because… three words. MAC. AND. CHEESE.
Need I say more?
For this recipe, you’ll need to purchase their Impastable low-carb elbows (8g net carbs!) And for all you Amazon Prime members out there, you can also purchase them on Amazon, however it looks like they’re a few dollars more and some Amazon members reviewed their bread arrived moldy, so I’d advice purchasing from the company directly. (Mine arrived perfect 🙂 )
Just a few notes before we get to the recipe:
You can use cheddar cheese for a more traditional mac and cheese, or mozzarella for more of a white cheddar flavor.
Salt makes a HUGE difference. Don’t forget the salt! I also suggest black pepper and a few favorite spices (garlic powder, red pepper flakes, etc.)
The pasta cooks VERY quickly. I boiled it for about 2 minutes and it was ready.
Also, if you don’t have cream or almond milk, feel free to use 1/2 cup milk or cream of your choice.
