I'm about to go back on the low-carb train after a prescription of steroids caused some weight gain.

This recipe does look delicious but, the carbs in this are around twice the daily amount of carbs you should eat. That is if you are trying to cut down on your carbs. Pasta's in general are usually not a good thing to eat when you want to cut out carbs.
