Of course! however you might want to make sure and wait for another commenter to confirm this as I am not very confident. Better yet, why don't you call the Dukan Diet guys because they can give you help better...
I love the potatoes just the way they are. I usually have them with 2 Hebrew National 97% fat free hot dogs. In fact, that was lunch today. YUMMY!.
I have heard that they are even better with a wedge of Laughing Cow Light stirred in. I can see that but I'm not tired of the original version yet..
The Fettucini also is greatly improved with a wedge of Laughing Cow Light added. I also add my protein. I have tried it with Oscar Mayer Deli Select 98% fat free lunch meats of various kinds (ham and smoked chicken are 2 I have tried). I have also tried it with shrimp and with imitation crab. I find that if I let it sit for twice the package listed time to rehydrate and then make my additions and heat it again in the microwave it is good. I also pepper it liberally...
I like the fettucine too...I always put in the LC light cheese with it OR I put parmesan on top .I also let it sit alot longer than recommended..it tastes really good with the extra cheese....:-)..
I can't eat the potatoes as is but use them to mkae fake shepher's pie. Since one package of Yves Veggie Ground Round equals six protein servings I use that for the base and then cover with six containers worth of the Dukan Diet potatoes..
Same for the alfredo - don't like it plain but makes a great base for pad thai, curried noodles, or spaghetti...
I could swear I had a fettucine lunch but all I had was the pasta with broccoli. I was looking forward to that tuna noodle casserole taste so I decided to make it with the pasta w/ broccoli. I added a wedge of LC cheese & 2 sliced green onions with the hot water, let that sit for awhile, then added one of those single-serve tuna cups & fresh ground pepper. After stirring, I microwaved it for another minute and this was SO INCREDIBLY GOOD! I was in heaven. If you like tuna noodle casserole, try this, it's very satisfying...
I appreciate all the suggestions. What I did today was put about half an inch of water in a pot, and while boiling I dumped in the fettucini. I added some sea salt and pepper, and turned the heat to med/low......let it cook for a few mins and then made half a cup steamed brocolli ( we are allowed to eat 1/2 cup veggie for a serving for lunch instead of salad), then I put the brocolli in the pot with the fettucini. Folded it all together and put in a bowl and there it was. I actually added a few drops of franks red hot and it was perfect. I am so glad I found something different, cuz lunchtime was really making me sick before, with most of the entrees, and nasty ff dresing and salad...
I stir fry ginger, onions, garlic, veggies, tofu, dump in the pasta, add a spoonful of peanut butter and some chilies - voila - passable fake pad thai...

What do you spread that recipe on? Veggie sticks?..
OMG, I am soooo making that fake shepherd's pieI didn't get any cheesy potatoes the first month in the "favorites" package, which I find surprising since everyone lists them as a favorite here. But I have some coming in my second month. I have some morningstar crumbles in my freezer right now!..
That is a recipe that has been around for a long time from the Dukan Diet recipe club. It's Jonie's Potato Salad. Here is the link..
It really tastes like potato salad, & it's yummy!..
Mokey_to, do you add anything to the Yves Veggie Ground Round? And at what temperature and for how long do you bake the completed dish? Also, do you freeze the extra 5 servings? Sorry for all the questions, but as you can see, I am not a creative cook...
I prefer chunky potato salads but the flavour sounds good..
I saute onions, garlic, ginger, carrots, peas, and corn(not strictly Dukan Diet but I figure an ear of corn and handful or two of peas divided into six is okay) When that has softened up I add the package of Ground Round(you can sue other bands or even crumble up veggie burgers) You could also use ground meat. Sometimes I add jerk seasoning or paprika because I love heat. I dump it into individual containers then top with potatoes. The beauty is that you don't have to bake it - just reheat as needed. I don't freeze them as they last me the week for lunch..
If you wanted to bake do it as you would Shepherd's Pie...
Yesterday I took the Fettucini added boiling water to the line and covered it, while that was setting I microwaved some left over broc. and onion and then added 1 FF hotdog sliced up, when the fettucini was done I dumped it over all of that and wahlaaaa...it was a huge serving and tasted pretty good too, and I think if I had thought of it at the time I might have added a few drops of hot sauce to this....that sounds yummy now...
Mokey_to...thank you so much! I can't wait to try your fake shepard's pie, although I think I'll call it Makey_to's Dukan Diet Shepard's Pie since it sounds pretty authentic to me. Hugs for the good eats!..
I have the Fettuccine over steamed broccoli and a piece of Gorton's Classic Grilled Salmon. I nuke the broc and the salmon at the same time. When the fish is cooked through, I flake it, dump the entree over it and the broc and stir it all together. Then I sprinkle with parm and some pepper blend and eat!.
I like the taters as they are. Usually have them with HN dogs and some spinach or broccoli..
The trick for the taters, is to first fill to the fill line, stir, notice the contents have fallen below the fill line, add more water up to the fill line and stir again, then steep...
Yes, that is where I found it. I didn't think it would work but I was pleasantly surprised. It is delicious...
