Happy Saturday! If you are like me you love pasta right? I could eat pasta 7 days a week. However I think pasta maybe was a help getting me to where I am today. lol. So I have been looking for lower calorie meals that include pasta but volumizing. (Adding things to bulk it up) A while ago I stumbled across shirataki noodles. I tried the fettuccine ones and didn't care for it at all. However being also a lover of ramen I found shirataki spaghetti noodles which are exactly like ramen noodles. However here is the difference The shirataki noodles are 30 calories for the bag with 0 mg sodium! Now add that to regular chicken broth and you have 260 mg sodium vs 830 from packaged ramen. I used unsalted chicken broth which only gave me 125 mg sodium, so if you are watching your salt intake this could be a recipe for you! By the way shirataki noodles are in the specialty foods section at your local grocer. They are made by Nasoya no fat,eggs,gluten or dairy. So this is the recipe I used. 2 cups of unsalted chicken broth, 1 pkg shirataki noodles, 1 1/2 cups spinach mix. there we go..Of course you can add some of your own seasonings as well. Enjoy!
Till we meet again...Mama Carol
