This is a fabulous recipe that is quick and easy enough to make on a weekday when you are tired and in a rush, but elegant and flavorful enough to serve when you have company. It has protein, vegetables, fiber, and healthy fat, but it is low in carbohydrates thanks to NutriNoodle Shirataki Spaghetti instead of regular pasta.
The recipe takes almost no prep and is super easy for any beginning cook. If you want to challenge yourself or you happen to have loads of summer tomatoes, you can make your own dried tomatoes in the oven. You might as well make a big batch since it takes a while in the oven and it keeps for a while. To make your tomatoes, just cut them in slices or strips, add salt, and bake for 4 hours at 250 degrees. Drizzle with olive oil, then store them for at least a day before using them.
The NutriNoodle Shirataki Spaghetti in this recipe has only 10 calories per serving. It has 0 grams of net carbohydrates, with 3 grams of dietary fiber, so the recipe is completely keto-friendly and suitable for low-carb and weight loss diets.
This recipe is so flavorful that you can skip the feta cheese if you prefer to keep it dairy-free or want to reduce the calorie content. You can drizzle the pasta with extra olive oil before serving it if you want the extra heart-healthy fats, but you can skip that step if you prefer to keep the calories and fat down.
