Guilt-Free Pasta with Shiritaki! Noodles

A less than 45 calorie cup of pasta?! It is real! It also has twice the nutritional value and the same consistency of regular pasta. What is it?They are known in many ways, a common moniker being “The Miracle Noodles.” This just one of many brands out there that manufacture pasta mimics made from Japanese konjac yam, a.k.a “elephant yam”, or “devil’s tongue” The name/word “shirataki” means “white waterfall”, which is a descriptor for the long, translucent noodles!This is a konjac yam:                          STUFF YOU MAY WANT TO KNOW1. They turn into these amazing, lovely and delicious, 45 calorie angel hair, regular, and fettuccinni noodles!2. They range anywhere from 15 to 45 calories per 1 cup serving.   3. They also combine perfectly with other ingredients. I made this bake with vegan chorizo, vegan cheese and tomato basil and it was ridiculous.
