Is one of your dreams to enjoy a big plate of noodles without guilt? This low-carb recipe may make it possible. Using NutriNoodles Shirataki Pasta, it has only a few carbs from the tofu. It is packed with flavor from pesto, and is rich in protein and healthy fats.
The more common way to drain tofu is to press it with paper towels, then repeat until the liquid is gone. An easier and more effective way is to freeze it. That’s right! Open the package, drain the liquid, and freeze the tofu overnight. Then boil water and place the tofu in the boiling water for about 10 minutes. Like magic, the tofu will be dried and ready to use!
This recipe includes homemade pesto, but you can use store bought pesto. Then you can save the rest for other pasta dishes, meatballs, wraps on low-carb wraps or tortillas, green salads, or egg or tuna salad. You can even blend it into hummus!
This recipe can be a meal on its own, or you can serve it over a vegetable such as cooked spinach. It works well with tofu, shrimp, tilapia, or chicken, too.
