I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Fettuccine you can afford to eat

Do yourself a favor.

{shirataki noodles}
Pick this up next time you're at the grocery store.
 I get mine at Fairway.  Its an amazing pasta substitute -- mostly because it's not pasta.  Tofu Shirataki is made from Konnyau root (from the yam family) and tofu and is extremely similar to pasta.  The only difference is that it's only 20 calories per 4 oz serving, has 3 grams of carbs per serving, no cholesterol, sugar, gluten, or dairy. Its maaaagic pasta.

I usually throw this into vegetable broth when I am lazy and craving some Ramen, but I saw this Hungry Girl recipe for "Fettuccine Hungry Girlfredo" (ha) and thought, "I used to LOVE fettuccine".... until one day my mom informed me I might as well be eating a plate of pasta tossed in lard with a hint of garlic. Buzz. Kill. 

I obviously altered the recipe to my liking, but you can make it work with whatever you have in the fridge.

1 package of fettuccine shaped Shirataki noodles
Green Zucchini
1 wedge of Light Swiss Laughing Cow cheese
Parmesan cheese
Fresh Garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and Pepper

I will warn you that Shirataki noodles do NOT smell good, and are a little bit slimy in consistency.  The noodles are packaged in a fishy-smelling liquid, and need to be thoroughly rinsed and dried.  If you don't like the slimy-ness, just add a little corn starch to dry up the noodles.

Cheesy Heaven!
