Low Carb & Gluten Free Lemon Garlic Pasta

I wanted to share with you all another super easy shirataki recipe. I like to make up several packages of the pasta all the way through the boiling stage and then let the pasta sit in the salted water for as long as possible. Then I’ll drain and rinse the whole pot, setting aside what I need for tonight’s meal and putting the rest in the fridge for quick dinners later in the week.

Drain and rinse two or more packages of shirataki noodles, any shape that works for you. Place in a microwave safe bowl or medium sauce pan and cover with water. Liberally season with garlic salt. Bring to a boil, turn off heat and allow to sit until you’re ready to use them. I like to let the pasta sit in the salted water as long as possible.

When you’re ready, drain and rinse the pasta. Top with:

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh lemon zest

2 tablespoons smashed or chopped capers

2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat leaf parsley (optional)

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

3/4 cup freshly grated or shredded Parmesan

sea salt and black pepper to taste

Toss, taste, adjust and enjoy :)

About admin

I've always abhorred the idea that the only way to lose weight is to starve yourself, eat foods that are foreign to you, or gulp down special weight loss potions. I've proved that it is not only possible, but it's easy and fun to lose weight The UnDiet way. The UnDiet is extremely flexible, allowing you to make deviations based on your personal taste, the choices confronting you at any given time, your mood, your cooking skills and the time you have available. A gourmet cook can be happy with The UnDiet as well as those who don't know or care what saute means. You can eat out at restaurants and parties and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet. So dig in to this blog, subscribe to the newsletter for lots of extras not published on the blog and get ready for the Kindle book coming soon.

We want to hear from you :)
