Today’s Menu: Tofu Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs

Tofu Spaghetti! Years ago I would have said “No Way” but now as I’m older and trying to eat more healthy this is great! I used House Food Tofu Shirataki Spaghetti Shaped Tofu. I made Mac & Cheese with Elbow Macaroni shaped Tofu a couple of weeks ago so I wanted to give Spaghetti and Meatballs a try. I heated the Tofu by the instructions, which I left at the bottom of the post along with description and web links.

For my sauce I used my favorite pasta Sauce, Bella Vita Low Carb Meat Flavored Pasta Sauce. If you watching the calories and carbs this sauce is the Bomb! Comes in Roasted Garlic and Meat Flavored and is only 70 calories and 6 carbs! The Meatballs were Honey Suckle White Turkey Meatballs. Love these Meatballs great flavor and they make a delicious Meatball Sub! They are 190 calories and 6 carbs per serving (3 Meatballs). I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Italian Seasoning and topped everything with a sprinkle of Kraft Shredded Parm and Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar. The nice part about this dinner, besides being delicious, is you can have a second helping and still have a low calorie and carb dinner. The one bag of Tofu makes more than enough for two people. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Bag of Jolly Time Mini Bag of Pop Corn.

House Tofu Shirataki.
Tofu Shirataki is a great pasta alternative made from blending the root of the Konnyaku – a member of the yam family and tofu.
It is a healthy, uniquely textured noodle – that pleases people of all ages!

*TOFU SHIRATAKI CANNOT BE FROZEN

Directions:
Step 1: Empty your noodles into a strainer, and rinse them with water to get rid of the liquid they were packed in.

Step 2: Dry them as thoroughly as possible by blotting with paper towels — remove as much moisture as possible. We cannot stress enough how important this is.

Step 3: Cut them up a bit; they can be VERY long. (Fun fact: We once found a noodle that was six feet long!) Kitchen shears (scissors you use only for food) make this super-easy.

Step 4: Heat your noodles for a minute or two in the microwave or in a skillet on the stove. (If microwaving, you may want to blot for liquid one more time before adding sauce.)

  1. I will definitely try this recipe

    • I was really happy how it turned out. The tofu made it taste so fresh. Like it says on the bottle of Bella Vita Pasta Sauce “You can have your pasta and eat it too”. Thank you for reading.
