You can use any kind of gluten free noodles in this recipe; however, if you want to cut the calories way down, I use Sharataki noodles. They are gluten free and many varieties have 0 calories ( yes, zero calories). The zero calorie variety is made from a vegetable fiber and has no calories or carbs. It does not have to be cooked; just blance for 1 minute in boiling water. When you open the package, rinse it well. It can sometimes have a fishy smell that goes away with rinsing. Sharataki noodles can be ordered online, purchased at an Asian food store, or the soy variety ( with 40 calories) is available in most supermarkets in the refriderator case near the tofu. I like the angel hair variety best..
This delicious recipe is low in calories yet highly nutritious and tasty.
No guilt indulging.. enjoy!
