One of the items I got at the farmers market was an 8 ounce bag of low carb garlic fettucine.  The woman who sold it made it all fresh and then dried it.  She does mail order too:

I actually liked the taste of it!  But the best part? 

4 ounce cooked pasta: 70 calories, .5 fat, 12 carbs, 9 fiber (!!) and 6 protein

I made garlic toast points with one of the homemade pita breads.  One pita was 2.5 ounces.  I cut it into 8 triangles, sprayed with butter flavor pam, sprinkled sea salt, garlic powder, Italian seasonings and fresh minced garlic.  Popped it under the broiler for about 4-5 minutes.
