low carb pasta recipe

My family loves pasta but I’m always worried about the carbs. If you’re like me then maybe you’ve tried substituting pasta with zucchini or squash. I love these alternatives, but my kids? Not a fan. So when a friend told me about skinny noodles.. I got excited, grabbed a pack of it and went straight to the kitchen to try it.

I used Skinny Noodles Shirataki Spinach Fettuccine for this recipe. It takes time to prepare them properly: rinse well, blanch and dry fry.. but it’s definitely worth it! Do the prep work right to make sure your noodles won’t come out wet. Dry frying will make them receptive to whatever sauce you are going to add them to.
