I separated the dry pasta in to 6 servings and cooked 2 servings, 1 of those servings is in this bowl for dinner and the other one is in the fridge for tomorrow. I store the sauce separate from the noodles so that I can reheat the sauce without reheating the noodles. I don't want the noodles to over cook because then your body will absorb more of the carbs that should not be digested and would increase the carb count. When cooked properly, one serving is 5 carbs plus whatever is in the sauce and veggies that you add.

It's been a while since I last posted so I thought that I would share what I cooked for dinner yesterday. I cooked homemade Mac 'n Cheese with Bacon, Broccoli and Grilled Chicken. And yes, it's Low Carb! :)
I've posted about Dreamfields pasta before and as always it's very important to follow the cooking directions and only boil it for 8 minutes and then immediately drain it and rinse it with cold water so that it stops cooking. I separate it into portion sizes and keep the sauce separate from the pasta. I will reheat the sauce and meat but I won't reheat the pasta.
Now for the sauce! I just melted 1 stick of butter and melted 2 cups of shredded cheddar and then added 16 ounces of heavy whipping cream and stirred it while cooking until it came to a boil and then reduced the heat to simmer until it thickened and kept stirring. Then added the cooked chopped broccoli and some crumbled pieces of bacon.
I portioned the pasta into 6 servings and saved the other 5 servings for later.
