Hungry Girl Recipe Thursday

It's Thursday again which means it's time for another awesome recipe find from one of my fav sites Hungry Girl! I love Fettuccine and at 99 cals per serving how could you not want to try this one!

Fettuccine Hungry Girlfredo 2.0

PER SERVING (entire recipe): 99 calories, 4g fat, 376mg sodium, 9.5g carbs, 4g fiber, 1g sugars, 5.5g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

Honesty time! While the original recipe calls for half a cheese wedge, we pretty much NEVER do that anymore. Plus we've included some top-notch Tofu Shirataki tips here...

1 package House Foods Tofu Shirataki Fettuccine Shaped Noodle Substitute
1 tsp. fat-free sour cream
2 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese
Salt and black pepper, to taste

Use a strainer to rinse and drain shirataki noodles well. Pat dry. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave for 1 minute. Drain excess liquid. Dry as thoroughly as possible, using paper towels. Cut noodles up a bit, using kitchen shears if you've got 'em.

Add sour cream, grated topping, and cheese wedge, breaking cheese wedge into pieces as you add it. Microwave for 1 minute.

Stir well and then season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

Thanks for the follow! I am loving this post of yours. I have been wanting to use the shirataki noodles, but I live in redneckville and the closest place that has them is probably an hour away at the Asian market. I'm going to stock up next time I go! I wish my co-op sold them. Anyway, looking forward to following you!
