Try Quinoa as an alternative type pasta product.

it can pass for a really delicious small pasta.

Quinoa (pronounced /ˈkwi-noa/ or /kwɨˈnoʊ.ə/, Spanish quinua, from Quechua kinwa), a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium), is a grain-like crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal, or grain, as it is not a grass. As a chenopod, quinoa is closely related to species such as beets, spinach and tumbleweeds.

you could check out some Gluten-Free pasta at the health food store.

I am also on a no sugar, no grains diet...but I guess you are looking for a pasta with no sugar????

you can use peelers to try and make noodles out of things like zucchini, but I find zucchini disgusting.

I think next payday I'm going to be trying the cream cheese/egg/nut meal noodles, and I've been trying to focus on low grains (still thickening soup w brown rice flour...)

SS I make cream of tomato and cream of broccoli/kale/celery soup when I need to thicken. I rounded tbsp of flour for 8-10 cups of soup. Can't have all the starchy veggies, find peas disgusting, can't eat lentils- oodles of restrictions. I don't thicken my chicken soup.
