“Pasta” for OnePosted: February 10, 2012
So this week has been crazy, and this weekend is only about to get crazier with the first two rounds of recruitment
So basically every night for dinner I’ve been coming up with easy meals that I can make/inhale in about 20 minutes before I go to recruitment practice
Last night I finally got around to eating the Tofu Shirataki noodles I bought at the grocery store a while ago
If you’ve never seen these in the grocery store, they are noodles made out of tofu..so I guess you could call them “fake” spaghetti. The entire bag is only 40 calories! I bought the angel hair version..and while they don’t resemble spaghetti exactly, I really don’t mind the difference and they are convenient to have on hand for a quick dinner!
So last night I used the noodles to whip up a quick dinner!
I sauteed some sliced mushrooms and a garlic clove over medium heat with a little cooking spray
I added in a little salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes
Then I added in a handful of spinach
Then I added in about 1/4 of a cup of store bought marinara sauce (RAO’s in my favorite to buy) Then I added in a leftover chicken sausage sliced up from last nights dinner
Then rinsed and drained the noodles and microwaved them for a minute. After that I added them into the pan and tossed in some parmesan cheese
Now you have yourself a nice big healthy bowl of pasta!
I was SO full after this!
I think these noodles are definitely worth giving a try if you haven’t yet..you can normally find them wherever the tofu is sold in your grocery store!
So I’m pretty much checking out of blogging for the weekend because of recruitment..but I’ll be back on Monday with an update!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
Question for ya!: Have you tried the tofu shirataki noodles? If so, are you a fan of them?
I am definitely a fan! I think the best part about them is how easy they are to prepare!
