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 a useful product that works well to reduce appetite when dieting and restricting calories, e.g. 200 grams which is 2 packs only amounts to 14 calories and provides around 7 grams of fiber from the konjac flour. it works well to fill stomach, i like to combine with some lean chicken breast or steak and it bulks up the meal with some broccoli and other low calorie salad e.g. such as cucumber and lettuce. It does not quite match the packet but nonetheless still works well as a replacement to the full calorie carb dense version which i can still have on my refeed days. 5/5 good filling dieting based food product.

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 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 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!
not a single bit even like penne!! These are really expensive for what they are. and these ones arent great at all. ive had another brands from groupon which are tons better. im really dissapointed with these! tiny portions aswell
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.
What is it?? Fishy smell and like rubber! More like squid than pasta! The concept is a good idea but don't waste your money!! A big let down for my protein! Goes Well With:Nothing!!
If you're cutting, this is great. Low cals, no fuss- a little chewy, but trust me you'll be full after. Smells funny, but fine after a wash. Good stuff! Goes Well With:bolognese rocket cheese
Tried to mix this with sauces and the texture is weird its slimy and doesn't even look like penne [pasta or the picture in the packaging. I dont think I would ever by this again. it looks all pale and literally looks like raw squid tentacles.. You've been warned it does not look like the picture haha
I thought I'd give it a try as I'm on a low carb diet, but I simply cannot stand the smell, texture and looks of the pasta. The MyRice isn't as bad because it mixes well with the sauces but the pastas, noodles and spaghetti are just not for me. They are effective in terms of filling and low carb product. I am able to eat all kinds of foods although this is just too much, it has a very strong smell of fish and slimy and weird texture. I would honestly not buy it unless you can pretty much stomach anything, I thought I could. Not too satisfied to be honest, quite disappointed!Goes Well With:Chicken and sauces if you can stomach it.
Low carb product!!!!! great for when im on a cut and trying to cut back my daily intake while remaining full. Goes really well with a low carb pasta sauceGoes Well With:chicken
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
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.
