Easy Pesto Shirataki Noodles

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Brooke the Cook in

Pesto with Noodles :) I use a pre-made pesto and put this together for myself as a quick and light lunch. One package pesto adds 40 calories to this dish. Could also be doubled or quadrupled for a family meal or side dish.

This is quick and easy, all right. This was my first time trying shirataki noodles, and I think they take a bit of getting used to (the package warned of the "authentic aroma") but for so few calories I can make the adjustment. I added a bit more pesto, just to personal taste. Thanks, Brooke!
