Tips

You can find Shirataki noodles at Whole Foods & Wegmans.

  1. Oh wow, love it with the advice in freexing the tomato sauce.

  2. YAY-thanks! Can’t wait to try the recipe this weekend!

  3. Aren’t tofu shirataki noodles cool? I love them!

    Thanks for the cookbook recommendations. I have to agree with you about the nutritional information. That’s probably the reason why I have so many Cooking Light cookbooks. They provide the info. The Moosewood cookbooks have it as well. You would think it would be a standard practice!

    You can get various software to figure it out for yourself, and I use the recipe builder on weight watchers. Still, it seems like it wouldn’t be that hard to just include it, ya know? I’m with you on that point. Totally!
