I love Fettuccini Alfredo, but have you ever looked at the calories in a serving of this yummy dish? Depending upon how much oil, cheese, etc... you use in this dish, you could be looking in the upwards of 500+ calories for one serving. Not diet friendly and certainly not low carb friendly. Guess what my friends, you do not have to give up this fabulous dish as I am excited to tell you about Miracle Noodle! In fact, I'll also share my 200 Calorie (give or take) Shrimp Fettuccini Recipe with you!
What is Miracle Noodle?Miracle Noodles are plant derived and also known as Shirataki Noodles. This noodle is made mainly of soluble fiber which acts to slow digestion. This process also prolongs the sensation of fullness and aids in better absorption of nutrients in food. Miracle Noodles are low in calorie and carbohydrates and are also gluten free. This makes them perfect for almost every diet!
200 Calorie Shrimp Fettuccini Recipe
Here's what you'll need:Shrimp (I cheated and used peeled - fully cooked - just removed the tails)
Laughing Cow Cheese (Garlic & Herb)
Mushrooms (Baby Bellas)
First, prepare the noodles according to the package. I believe they all pretty well have the same directions - but just to be safe - follow them. Then set them aside. Saute your mushrooms in butter or olive oil and Italian Spices.
Once these are done, mix together your fully cooked shrimp, noodles, mushrooms and begin to add in your laughing cow cheese over low-med heat. (Two-Three cheese wedges is perfect!) Continue mixing in the cheese until it is melted and then you are ready to serve and enjoy!
I am really impressed with how easy Miracle Noodles are to cook with. The texture is amazingly similar to pasta. The Noodles themselves remind me a lot of tofu as they absorb whatever flavors you mix in with them. So, you can make them very flavorful! They sure hit the spot when you want pasta without the guilt. To find out more information on these and all the other great flavors available visit Miracle Noodle.
