We love these low carb gluten free Penne. A superb alternative for normal pasta.

Surprisingly this product actually worked out really well. for someone with an autoimmune disease who loves pasta, but can't have it, this product tasted better than I thought. I will definitely buy it again.

Was excellent with a mutton stew. Great product. Will definenatly reorder.
13/09/2021, By Russel
I really do like "normal" pasta, but they have way too many carbs. This is the first substitute product that I have found that I can enjoy.
17/06/2021, By Charmaine
My daughter and I both LOVE this alternative to normal pasta and it makes it so easy to stick to our Banting lifestyle and not miss out on yummy pasta dishes ????
22/05/2021, By Mark
I have recommended it :-) It's a very enjoyable tasty alternative to pasta.
16/04/2021, By Claire
I was expecting the worst, most keto substitutes suck. This pasta was great, it doesn't taste exactly like pasta but it's better than nothing.
08/04/2021, By Zaki
Delicious! I boiled the pasta for about 40 minutes- it was the perfect texture. It looked weird and I was a bit worried but it tasted amazing ( with bacon, tomato and basil pasta sauce)
18/03/2021, By Megan
It’s does not go as soft as normal pasta but it’s great because it’s filling and carbs conscious
07/03/2021, By Hannah
Having tried most other carb-free pastas, this is probably as close to the real thing as you're going to get. Will definitely purchase again.
26/02/2021, By Colin
Its second time I bought.. need to buy again
10/02/2021, By Sheldeen
It was tasty but didn't feel the gap
04/02/2021, By Megan
It’s definitely different- I’m not a huge fan that it doesn’t get soft but the taste isn’t bad.
03/02/2021, By Bianca
05/01/2021, By Duané
Different but I like it!
04/01/2021, By Safiyyah
Tasty pasta alternative...Iike having the real thing
23/12/2020, By Mieke
LOVE LOVE LOVE! This is a life saver. Best low carb pasta, loving the texture and flavor!!
11/12/2020, By Neethu
Has a slightly different feel than normal wheat pasta, but better than I expected it to be.
24/11/2020, By Nicola
After not eating pasta for 3 years I'm really enjoying this product! Will definitely purchase more :)
12/11/2020, By Johane
01/11/2020, By Sandy
This is a really good wheat pasta substitute. It’s filling and takes on the flavour of the sauce you use. Cook for approximately 25-30 minutes for best texture.
29/10/2020, By Yusus
great product
25/10/2020, By Amanda
Great value
23/10/2020, By Stacy
Great product, especially with meaty sauce
21/10/2020, By Sara
Good for a wheat pasta replacement
17/10/2020, By Leon
Do not cook this for 8-12 minutes, cook it for 15 minutes then drain the water and add new boiling water and cook about another 15 minutes.

Closest to real pasta I have found. But cooking it for 8-12 minutes is not enough.
14/10/2020, By Lizel
Its a delicious alternative.
09/10/2020, By Kim
Perfect for banters
05/10/2020, By Jennifer
Needs to be cooked for quite a while, but totally better than no pasta at all.
17/08/2020, By Marietjie
Made myself half a packet today as part of a salad and found it to be real filling. It is great and chewy. Love this and will definately buy it again for my "pasta gravings" which I normally had to miss out on
14/08/2020, By Natasha
If you make a macaroni and cheese , fantastic
12/08/2020, By Archeninja
Not the best low carb pasta option out there but it'll do. I've added it to a creamy cheesy chicken dish. It's filling.
01/08/2020, By Greenie
28/07/2020, By Karen
Very good product and has a neutral taste
21/07/2020, By Michelle
My husband didn't even know he was eating low carb pasta. The coconut taste was very light, but used it in a tomato based dish.
21/07/2020, By Archenita
it's OK. Best with a cheese or tomato sauce
09/06/2020, By Cebile
I actually did get four servings from the small package, I didn't think I would,. I cooked it for longer then recommended so it can be soft. It's a coconuty taste, I don't like coconut but I was able to eat it. Texture isnt everything but I would say you get used to it. I will order again
03/06/2020, By Jo
It's ok. If it's the only pasta you can eat, it better than nothing
22/05/2020, By Marz
Great alternative to the "real" thing, with less guilt! Low in carbs and easily adaptable in most pasta recipes i.e. baked, or added into a pot mix after boiling!

13/05/2020, By Jo
my daughter cannot eat pasta anymore and seriously misses it. This is not pasta, but it is the next best thing with bolognese sauce on
04/05/2020, By Elder
Very good
03/05/2020, By Inga
Nice product
23/04/2020, By Jarel
15/04/2020, By Avi
Really enjoyed this! its a great pasta substitute, would definitely order again!
06/04/2020, By Blue
What a pasta
03/04/2020, By VUYISWA
They are actually tasty, they are very little though, I would say one gets 2 servings from that.
19/01/2020, By Aid
24/12/2019, By Nomsa
Not what I expected small package nd taste didn't like
18/12/2019, By B
It is not the most amazing thing I have ever eaten but it has a smooth enough taste and does feed four as indicated because a little bit is filling.
12/11/2019, By Bronwen
It does have a slight grainy texture, but nowhere near as much as other low carb pastas I have had. I will buy it again when I feel rich.
21/10/2019, By Delia
Love this pasta, I was expecting a coconut taste, but couldn't taste any. Simmered it with bolognaise sauce, mushrooms, courgettes and garlic, delicious! You do need to cook it longer than the recommend 8 mins, also it is definitely not a serving for 4 as stated on the packet. Once cooked and drained, it was 3/4 of a normal size coffee cup. Will defenitely be buying more.
09/10/2019, By Vene
Wow, was sceptical at first but not anymore. Great product, little pricey. I would definitely buy this pasta again. I found you need to cook it a little longer that the recommended 8 min and just let it sit in the sauce a couple minutes before serving. Great product!
24/09/2019, By Oros
Love it
15/09/2019, By Netanya
This was the first time that I ordered this product and I'll definitely order it again. The texture is slightly gritty but the taste is good and it really satisfied my carb craving.
10/07/2019, By Chloe
I absolutely love this pasta. It cooks quickly, tastes amazing with a hint of coconut and it goes with everything! I've made tuna pasta with mayonnaise and mince pasta with bolognese and both were super delicious.
11/03/2019, By Ingrid
This was the first time I ever bought banting pasta, so didn't really know what to expect. I suppose as great as pasta that's not pasta can be. The package is a lot smaller than expected, but I guess I should have just looked at the weight before purchasing.
21/01/2019, By Tamsyn
Not the greatest tasting pasta, but when you're limited by the various flours banting allows it is a good substitute. Just found it to be very grainy
20/01/2019, By Leanne
I like this pasta. It tastes quite different from ordinary pasta, but I like the taste. Definitely one of the best ones out there, so many gluten free/banting pastas taste awful. Quite pricey for a little packet but you don't need a lot.
18/01/2019, By Caz
Love it
18/01/2019, By Cheval
A good substitute for normal pasta, absorbs the flavours from the sauces
16/01/2019, By Maryke
This is great in a stew after it has absorbed all the flavours. I was worried that it might disintegrate when stirring, but it held its shape and consistency nicely. It is a bit thicker than normal pasta but a lot tastier.
11/12/2018, By Kathy
pretty good for a low carb pasta.
07/12/2018, By Daphne
LOVE this pasta. Awesome substitute, I dont miss normal pasta at all. Very filling and nice texture
09/11/2018, By Jammi
My absolute favourite. When I have this, I tend to eat only pasta for a while
06/11/2018, By RJ
Awful... Just awful! It tastes almost sweet and overwhelmingly like coconut. It is not compatible with tomato based sauces at all. The size is pathetic for what you pay. I would not recommend it
29/10/2018, By Karen
I love this low carb and gluten free pasta, it is a really tasty product.
22/10/2018, By Alison
Yippee! A low carb pasta with texture and taste. I'm so thrilled to have found this product, believe me, I've tried it all! Banting eating is going to be so much easier now. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
27/09/2018, By Ilse
I like this pasta, good alternative for ordinary pasta. Like the taste, good texture.
27/09/2018, By Hloni
I was disappointed. Granted I didn't know what to expect but I don't like the taste and I don't like the texture. And the amount is very small for the price.
21/09/2018, By Megan
21/08/2018, By Karen
Lovely pasta alternative for low carb eating, good texture
29/07/2018, By Bell
Found this to be a great low carb pasta that tastes good aswell.
Good option if you monitor glucose levels.
19/06/2018, By Carina
Not really comparable to any pasta. Not very tasty either, but great for digestion.
02/06/2018, By Esli
Quick to make. Good texture. Will definitely recommend this to all banters! It made my meal feel like a comfort meal - minus the guilt. Absolutely in love with the product
14/05/2018, By SHAMS
Not a fan of Coconut Flour - although enjoyed the taste of the Penne
Probably closest to normal pasta
02/05/2018, By Gail
Not great tasting on its own but enjoyed it smothered with a nice spicy sauce. The 120g made 4 reasonable portions so net carbs around 5 to 6g per serving.

Love this product! Finally us banters can also enjoy a pasta alternative. Will def buy again.
04/02/2018, By Sue
Love this product, great alternative to pasta. Do not try if you do not enjoy coconut. Deifinetly a favourite of mine.
11/01/2018, By Ayesha
As much as I've tried to enjoy the taste of coconut flour, I just can't seem to. This pasta didn't really sit well with my taste buds because coconut has a very dry texture and my diet doesn't allow for many saucy things. If you enjoy dry texture of coconut then this product won't disappoint you but if not, I'd rather not spend money on it.
28/12/2017, By Rene
This is an excellent product if you are craving pasta! It does taste like coconut, so I would recommend a very strong tasting sauce to mask the flavour. You can get about 4 - 5 servings out of one packet, the pasta is quite filling.
16/11/2017, By Carissa
One of my favourites!
01/11/2017, By one
Sorry, ingredients are on pack. Helps if you put your glasses on!
01/11/2017, By Jill
The term Banting is highly misleading. The total carbs per portion are 26.1 and there are no ingredients given, so you have no idea what the has gone into the penne. I assume it has the right stuff in it, but have no idea if that is so. I haven't tried it, don't know if I will at that carb count. But would never have bought it had I known this information upfront.
31/10/2017, By Jenece
I was bit nervous to try this product. It was so delicious! You can taste the coconut flour - but I love coconut, so it was no issue. It is a great texture! Not mushy. Firm and held the sauce well. Definitely try it!
