Ever heard of Miracle Noodles? If you like pasta then you might want to give these a try...

They are zero calorie, zero carb, zero fat, gluten-free and kosher. I probably missed something else about them but they are great!

Just open the package, rinse in cold water for about a minute(smells like fermented fish - yucky but don't let it put you off)
dip in boiling water for one minute, drain and pat dry on paper towels.

Texture is a bit like cooked mushrooms but they not bad. And since the noodles actually have no flavor they take on the flavor of your sauce.

I made my own "Italian" Sauce:

14.5 oz can fire roasted or "Italian" diced tomatoes - I have used both
8 oz lean ground meat cooked - turkey, chicken or beef
1 garlic clove crushed
basil, parsley and oregano to taste
salt/pepper to taste

puree the tomatoes
combine tomatoes, meat, garlic and seasonings in a small pot and simmer however long you want.

Pour over noodles and serve

I chilled it in the fridge for 48 hours so the flavors got happy and yum!!!

Interesting, I wonder if they are made with mushrooms rather than flour, potato, or rice. That would account for the texture. Any product link or manufacturer info?

EDIT: Looks like it's made out of glucomannan, which is dietary fiber. I found the website here.

Hi, if you do a web search for Miracle Noodles, you'll find their site. They sell them online. It looks as though they're made of mushrooms. They're rather pricy. That figures. They're probably made from dried mushrooms. Just think how many dried mushrooms it would take to mill enough flour from them to make a batch of noodles. Anyway, I do something nearly as good. I use zucchini cut into 1/4 inch strips which I boil for 1 minute and then drain. Very low cal, no carb, and not at all expensive.

Miracle noodles or shirataki noodles are made from a plant called Yam or Konjak - they are not made from mushrooms.
the noodles have the fiber part and a lot of water. There will be a trace element of carb and calories in the product.

I use them a lot as noodle replacement in some dishes. Lots of rinsing and squeezing in a paper towel and maybe a minute in the microwave and they are good to go. One of my favourite low carb products out there

Ive had no problem finding the shiritaki noodles and I'm in central NY lol. Here's what I like to do with them:

Combine .5 cup fat free chick or veggie broth, a few table spoons of light low sodium soy, and some asian seasoning mix I found (keeps me from having to do ginger, garlic, etc separate) and some crushed red pepper to your heat taste in a sauce pan. Then add in 3-4 table spoons of PB2 (A GODSEND if you can find it) or 1-2 table spoons of peanut butter and stir until disolved. Toss in about .5-.75 cup of sliced fresh mushrooms and 2-3 ounces of cooked chicken and cook until chicken is warmed. Mix in 1 package of prepared noodles and toss. Top with chopped scallions and it's a great dinner loaded with protein! Using the PB2 and plain chicken cut the fat and carbs to almost nothing.

Pasta Less calories with sauce than without
The sauce adds volume so there would be less pasta per cup serving.
