I really don't see why people fuss so much about the smell and texture of shirataki noodles... I mean, the liquid it comes packed in does have a shellfish scent, but it rinses right off and the noodles become odorless/flavorless. And the texture is, well, maybe a little more "snappy" than Italian pasta, but not by much!
I made a bag of the Pasta Zero fettuccine with 1/4 cup of Bertolli Four Cheese Rosa sauce plus a bit of Jane's Mixed-Up Salt, and it tasted fantastic! I rinsed the noodles in hot water and drained them, then dry-fried them for maybe 3 minutes on medium-high heat, then tossed the sauce in the pan with them and cooked it for about 3 more minutes. Then I ate it.
The whole thing set me back 140 calories and 9 carbs, 3 of which were fiber so they don't even count. So really it was ~130 calories/6 carbs, almost all of which was from the sauce. And I'm very full right now. Happy tummy. :-)
