0-pt "pasta" dish

Recommended Posts

This is going to become an old standby for me if I'm "starving" but have already eaten my points for the day (which would actually meant I wasn't starving)

 

Makes 1-4 servings, depending on how hungry you are. If you eat the whole thing, I'd call it a point

 

1 bag white shirataki noodles (Check out the NI: 1 whole bag = 20 calories... made from yam)

1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)

3 cups fresh spinach

Fresh garlic

Olive Oil spray (I use Mazola and love it; Pam would work)

Herbs of your choice

 

Boil noodles as package directs.

While water boils, in small frying pan, sautee garlic and spinach in OO spray until it wilts. Add in sun-dried tomatoes.

When noodles have been boiled, strain, add to frying pan, cook for 1-2 min, add spices.

 

Voila: 10 min; easy, and POINTLESS!

 

It's not the same as a home-made Italian meal but, ya know, if you're hungry, this'll do the trick. Add real olive oil, broccoli, onions, etc. to taste, or even real marinara sauce.

This sounds great. Though some buddies might not be familiar with the difference between the white shirataki and the Tofu Shirataki

 

The Tofu Shirataki that hungry girl always talks about is a bit more. It's 40 calories per bag so I always count that as 1 point.
