    Miss Annie in Indy's Note:

    This is an inspiration from Sugarpea and her recipe: Bowtie Pasta with Broccoli and Broccoli sauce. If you're trying to loose weight, are on a low carb diet or just trying to eat healthier check out House Foods Shirataki noodles. What a great alternative to pasta. It's quick to fix, so good for you and tastes GREAT! UPDATE: I made a couple of modifications to this recipe to make a LOT less fat and more healthy thanks to my reviewer.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut the broccoli buds into small florets, leaving as short a stem as possible and set aside.
    2. 2
      Cut the remaining broccoli stems into 1/2" pieces; steam the broccoli pieces, the diced onion and the garlic, in 1 cup of lightly salted water for 10 minutes or until very soft.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, place shirataki noodles in a colander, rinse in water thorourghly and drain. At this point I use my kitchen scissors to cut the noodles into bite sized pieces.
    4. 4
      Place the chicken broth, reserved florets and shirataki noodles into a small pot and steam or boil 4 to 5 minutes, retaining the bright green color and a bit of crunch; drain liquid and reserve.
    5. 5
      In a food processor, puree the cooked broccoli, onion and garlic until very smooth, adding a bit of the reserved pasta broth if needed to make a smooth sauce; add feta cheese, pulse until melted; add salt & pepper to taste.
    6. 6
      Pour warm sauce over the shirataki noodles & broccoli and stir gently to combine; plate and sprinkle with extra feta cheese if desired.

      Really lovely recipe! Glad to see shirataki noodles used in a non asian dish. Like another reviewer said, the sauce's green color is a little off putting, but it taste great so no complaints here!

      so easy...and so good - of course, it looks not so appetizing with the greenish sauce, but...it tastes good :-) i'll be making this again for sure

      Judy I made this before, and realize I never reviewed it! I'm so sorry! This makes a wonderful quick, hot, nutritions lunch! I love shirataki noodles, and this is another way to use them! Thank you for the recipe! This is perfect for a WW version, just substitute lower fat feta, and could just eliminate the butter. That would probably have only a point or two per serving.
