Shirataki with pesto and tomatoesThere is a tofu based product called “Shirataki”.  It is an incredible substitute for pasta, and in my opinion FAR superior to spaghetti squash (the texture of squash just doesn’t cut it for me).

The trick to Shirataki is to not be put off by the smell when you open the package….there is a fishy-ness to it.  Just dump it into a strainer and rinse immediately which takes care of it.

Prep time for this meal is about 2 minutes, which makes it a fabulous lunch when you are totally famished.  AND, the Shirataki has a pretty long shelf life, so when it comes on sale you can stock up.  Besides being low carb, the noodles are also low calorie when compared to pasta.  Only 20 per serving !

Shirataki with Pesto and Tomatoes

1 Serving Shirataki (4 oz)
1 Medium Tomato
1 Tbsp. Pesto

Rinse Shirataki noodles in a strainer.  Dump into a bowl, add 1 Tbsp. Pesto, and microwave for 30-60 seconds.  Add Tomatoes and mix together.
