No Italian-lover's kitchen is quite complete without ziti! What is ziti pasta, you ask? This kind of pasta is usually shaped into the form of tubes, sometimes ones that look like large macaroni. But traditional ziti is made of wheat and other grains that can weigh you down. On the other hand, our ziti substitute is made from the Konjac plant, which provides plenty of flavor and substance minus the guilt.
In fact, Miracle Noodle Ziti Shirataki Pasta contains only 5 calories per serving, not to mention 0 grams of fat, 0 grams of sugar and just 2 grams of carbs. It makes the perfect starting point for a range of Italian favorites, including baked ziti, Tuscan soup and even mac and cheese! We love ziti because it's great at sopping up delicious sauce, so you can dress it up any way you please.
It doesn't get much easier than this to prepare low-carb noodles:
- Cut bag of Miracle Noodles open with scissors and drain in colander/strainer for one minute in cool water.
- Lightly boil noodles for 2-3 minutes. But no more than 3 minutes!
- Drain noodles and dry roast them using no oil or spray in pan for 1 minute.
- After 1 minute, you should hear a squeaking noise. Don't worry! The noodles aren't being harmed. In fact, this means they are ready.
- Add a low-sugar sauce or stock to the finished noodles. Also add steamed, sauteed or lightly grilled veggies. Stir. Healthy noodle stir fry ready!
