Try finding lower carb alternatives for your favorites. I'm not Italian, but I love the food. I do things like this:

Spaghetti squash with tomato sauce and homemade meatballs (important to make them from scratch because the pre-made ones have a lot of carbs)

Meatballs in alfredo sauce (yummy)

Low carb tortilla topped with pizza toppings and tons of cheese. I cook this on parchment to crisp up the crust.

Dreamfield's pasta for spaghetti or mac n cheese

It might help you enjoy it more. Good luck whatever you decide.
