Quick and Easy Low Carb Fettuccini Alfredo
Wanted a smallish dish, somewhere between a snack and a meal, so I did this:
Drained a packet of tofu shirataki, fettuccini style. Snipped across them a few times with my kitchen shears, 'cause they're too long. Put 'em in a microwaveable bowl, and nuked them for a couple of minutes. Re-drained them, then gave them another couple of minutes and drained them one more time. This gets out a lot of excess water, and keeps them from diluting your sauce.
Then I added about 2/3 ounce of cream cheese, cut in little chunks, a tablespoon or so of butter, ditto, and half a small garlic clove, crushed. Stirred it all up till the cream cheese and butter had melted in. Then I stirred in 3-4 tablespoons of freshly grated Parmesan. A little S&P, and ate it! Just what I wanted.
