I make pretty much the same thing and use shirtaki noodles too (such lifesavers those things, I can't even tell the diff between them and real noodles!) To make a single serv which is a perfect amt for Shirtaki Noodles: 2T butter 4T Heavy Whipping Cream 3T Parmesan I like to use this with chicken, broccoli and a little bit of onion and garlic. YUM. Great with Fettuccine Shirataki AND Angel Hair.
