There is an old adage that goes, “Don’t be upsetti. Have some spaghetti!”.
And I think it’s good advice. But what are people on a low carb diet supposed to do when they get upsetti? Where’s our spaghetti?
Well, I tried out some low carb noodles that might just solve the spaghetti conundrum.
They are called Zeroodle Shirataki and Oat Fiber Noodles. These noodles have zero net carbohydrates because both ingredients are pure fiber. So they are edible but not digestible. Which is both weird and kind of awesome at the same time.
The main thing you notice about shirataki noodles is the chewiness.
They are hella chewy. I couldn’t detect any flavor to them, so I decided to make an extra flavorful sauce to go with the noodles. I turned to my old friends at Cook’s Illustrated to help. This recipe is based on their killer sauted mushroom and thyme cream sauce. It is to die for. And the whole meal ended up clocking in at just 6g net carbs. Pretty good for a big ole plate of pasta.
So just remember…
