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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) package tofu shirataki noodles, spaghetti shaped
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 -2 tablespoon pesto sauce (I use a pre-made frozen pesto, fresh is best!)

Directions

  1. Rinse and drain tofu noodles very well.
  2. Microwave on high for 1 minute and rinse and drain again.
  3. You may want to pat dry with a paper towel.
  4. Meanwhile, heat skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add tofu noodles and saute 2 or 3 minutes until noodles appear dried.
  6. Add butter and pesto sauce and heat 2 or 3 more minutes until butter and pesto cover the noodles.
  7. Enjoy!

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!

Great recipe: super easy, super quick, super delicious; and - if the mood so takes you - there's scope for adding a few more ingredients if you have just a few more minutes available! But seriously, the recipe is great exactly as it is. I used an excellent quality pesto from a long-trusted Greek deli, and made this exactly to the recipe. This will be a regular quick meal for me now, Brooke! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

These were really yummy noodles and so quick and easy. I already had some homemade pesto sauce prepared, so it took me no time to have this ready for my family today when I felt too busy to cook! I had a little trouble trying to decide how to adjust this to make enough for my family. I think the serving sizes are a little large, but maybe it's just me. Thanks Brooke! Made for Zaar Tag.
