To me, these are a little big for most uses.  They'd be great for a fettucini alfredo, but honestly, none of the diet alfredo sauces do much for me.  I have used these to make low carb chicken noodle soup (cut them up a bit with a knife and add them to broth and chicken) and they are pretty good for that.

I actually really like the thickness of these noodles.  They feel more substantial to me and really keep the sauce sauce.  I make my own spaghetti sauce with lots of chunky veggies and it goes great with these noodles, yummy!

These are my favorite! The shape and texture is much better for stir fry and soaks up any sauce well.

These are an awesome pasta-alternative. They do smell a little funky (as I've read in some reviews) when you first take them out of the package, but you just rinse them well and they're great. The texture is a bit different than regular pasta, but I don't mind it at all. They don't really have a taste, but will take on the flavour of whatever you cook/serve them with. I used them in a 'chicken noodle' soup today and am thinking of tons of other ways I'd like to try them (spaghetti, stirfry, maybe cutting them up into smaller pieces and making tuna noodle casserole.. I've also heard of people chopping them very finely and using them as a subsititute for rice.. can't wait to try it!).

I found these noodles at Sobeys today. They were with the tofu hotdogs.
