130 Calorie Spaghetti

I created this spaghetti on a whim when eating dinner with my family. I wanted a healthier alternative to the pasta my dad makes, and this recipe creates a substantial bowl of food for a minimal amount of calories. You can eat this in front of others to make it appear like you're eating a large meal. It tastes great and is filling, too!

You will need:

1 packet of Shirataki Tofu noodles (this recipe can use the angel hair or fettuccini cut) - 40 calories
1/2 cup of Prego pasta sauce - 70 calories
1 tbsp of freshly shredded Parmesan cheese (optional) - 20 calories

Feel free of course to add any extra veggies you feel like. Fresh peppers, mushrooms, or onions would be nice additions. If your diet allows, a small addition of beef or chicken would taste great.

Instructions:

Open and rinse your tofu noodles with cold water in a strainer/collander. When sufficiently rinsed, lay them on paper towels and pat dry. THIS STEP IS VERY IMPORTANT. The liquid the noodles are stored in is very stinky. If you don't rinse and dry them, your noodles will be very smelly.

After this step, I throw the noodles in a pot of boiling water to soften and warm them a bit more. Once they've boiled for about 3-5 minutes, take them out and drain them. Once the water is drained, throw the noodles back into your pot and keep it on low heat. Add your sauce, cheese, or veggies and mix continuously until at desired heat. Serve directly onto your plate and enjoy!
