This bowl of pasta with marinara and chicken sausage has about 150 calories. The secret? Hungry Girl's favorite Tofu Shirataki noodles.
One of the staples in Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien’s arsenal of low-calorie foods is Tofu Shirataki “noodle substitute.” She began touting this semi-obscure product, made by Japanese company House Foods, years ago, and now her familiar logo appears on the package. Thanks in large part to Hungry Girl, the 20-calorie-per-serving noodles can now be found everywhere from Whole Foods to FreshDirect.
Tofu Shirataki comes in fettuccine, spaghetti and angel hair shapes. I used the thickest noodles for the easy dish above.
As someone who loves pasta and enjoys tofu as well, I was intrigued at the notion of these guilt-free noodles. I’ll admit that the first time I tried them, I was less than impressed. I found them slimy, slightly rubbery and had trouble getting past the weird smell inside the liquid-filled package. But Hungry Girl offers some tips I should have followed: In her Fettuccine Hungry Girlfredo recipe, she instructs to rinse and drain the noodles in a strainer, then microwave them for one minute and dry thoroughly with paper towels.
