I've previously mentioned shirataki noodles and rice: ultra-low carb substitutes for the real deal that make low carb living that little bit easier. However, you can also get shirataki pasta! There are many brands available but here are two great options:

The first is the penne made by Liviva (formerly Zeroodles – although I think I prefer the old name!). You can buy it from Amazon, Netrition, and even some larger grocery stores.

The second is the ziti from Miracle Noodles – and you can get 10% off when you order from Miracle Noodles direct! Use coupon code “AFF10” on checkout to get your discount!

How to Make a Low Carb Pasta Bake with Chicken

First prepare the penne by draining it in a colander over the sink, and rinsing it in cold water.

Note: The penne has a firm texture in the finished dish. If you prefer softer shirataki, transfer them to a bowl, cover with boiling water, and let sit for five minutes. Then drain, and set aside.

To a large bowl, add some tomato sauce, shredded cheese (I used mozzarella), chopped cooked chicken, garlic paste, onion powder, and dried oregano.

Add the drained shirataki pasta and season with salt and pepper.

Cover the pasta mixture in more cheese and bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese topping is starting to brown.

I don't have the ziti but I do have the rice. Do you think I could substitute successfully?

I think that the rice might get a little "lost", but I am sure that taste-wise it would work really well!
