Several months ago, I'd discovered a treasure at my local grocer; Tofu Shirataki. I love tofu and was so excited because since I couldn't eat pasta, I now had a way to enjoy a tasty alternative! All you have to do is follow the basic preparation instructions for the tofu noodles themselves and you'll have about two and a half servings of spaghetti with the added bonus of more protein and less carbs in under ten minutes!
