And when you find out, let ME know!!!!  I have a terrible time with
pasta, too -- no matter what kind. For me, I almost always
underestimate, and have high BGs! :(  So one time I tried even measuring
to precisely the number of grams on the scale, and it was a miserable
failure. 

On the other hand, I HAVE been able to compensate for highs pretty
easily -- if I'm still high 4 hours out from a meal, a little insulin
will bring me down readily -- but there's still the "feeling icky"
factor that doesn't go away that quickly!

Good luck!
