    Brooke the Cook in WI's Note:

    I just love tofu shirataki noodles for lunch and am always looking for low calorie ways to prepare them. Here's one I created with a little leftover low-fat cream cheese and skim milk! Recipe makes one serving, but could easily be adjusted.

      Delicious and being made in the microwave just so very easy; and low in fat without tasting as if it is! I doubled the recipe for two and made this pretty much to the recipe. I used low-fat milk (which I never find compromises taste) but I confess to not having used low-fat or reduced-fat cheese as I find that too often it's so flavourless that I regret having even included it. I added a cup of thinly sliced mushrooms in step three and a generous pinch of thyme (since I love that with mushrooms). I didn't measure the pepper, just added till it tasted as we like it. Loved the lemon juice. A great little recipe, which I'll happily make again - and very versatile. Where I added mushrooms, you could so easily add chopped ham or slices of roasted red peppers - or whatever took your fancy. One of several great Tofu Shirataki I've found on Zaar, so these are now a staple pantry item for me. Next time I make this, I'm going to use minced garlic in place of the garlic salt, but the latter is certainly great when you're in a hurry! Made for Newest Zaar Tag. Thanks for sharing another super recipe, Brooke!

      Generally good, but it calls for WAY too much pepper. Go for about 1/4 of what's recommended. Also, try using 1 wedge of light garlic & herb laughing cow cheese instead of the cream cheese. It's DELICIOUS!
