I just found out the greatest thing: there's a type of noodle, made in Japan, called Sharataki Noodle which has very few calories - only 40 calories for 2 cups!! Isn't that exciting for all us women who want to eat noodles without gaining weight?
These noodles can be bought in supermarkets. I found these in Citos Foodhall in the Japanese food section, close to the meats.
Ok, now for a really yummy recipe:
