I know what you mean.  Pasta is one of those foods of my past and I have very fond memories of it.  🙂  But really, I don't miss it at all.  There are so many foods that I can eat.  I have learned to absolutelty love spaghetti squash.  And when spaghetti squash is not available at the store, I bake a potato.  Everyone else has spaghetti sauce on pasta, but you should try it on a baked potato.  It is really a good substitue for pasta.
