Fettuccine Hungry Girlfredo
- 1 (2-serving) package tofu shirataki fettuccine-shaped noodle substitute (recommended: House Foods)
- 1 wedge light spreadable Swiss cheese (recommended: The Laughing Cow)
- 2 teaspoons reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping, plus more for serving, optional
- 1 teaspoon fat-free sour cream
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Fresh parsley, for serving, optional
- Steamed broccoli, as an accompaniment, optional
Use a strainer to rinse and drain the shirataki noodles well. Pat dry.
Place in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave 1 minute. Dry as thoroughly as possible, using paper towels. Cut noodles up a bit, using kitchen shears or a knife.
Add cheese wedge, grated topping, and sour cream, breaking the cheese wedge into pieces as you add it. Microwave for 1 minute.
Stir well and then season with salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley and additional grated topping and serve with broccoli, if using. Enjoy!
