Keto Shirataki Pasta Primavera

Bright vegetables provide a visual and flavor pop against the savory yet simple creamy sauce that brings this easy dish together. Sub zoodles for the shirataki noodles, add bacon or sliced chicken for a more substantial meal, pour in some cream for more loose, creamy sauce. Make sure to adjust the macros with any changes you make.

  • Prepare a medium bowl of ice water.
  • Place a medium saucepan of water over high heat. When the water boils, add 1 tablespoon salt and the broccoli florets and cook until crisp-tender, 1½ to 2 minutes. Immediately remove the broccoli with a slotted spoon to the ice water, reserving the broccoli water over low heat.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the red pepper, zucchini, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and sauté, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened and beginning to brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, add the scallions, onion powder, cream cheese, 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese, and 1/2 cup water. Cook, stirring often, until sauce is smooth and thick, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, open the pack of shirataki noodles. Drain and rinse them, then place them in the hot broccoli water for 3 minutes. Drain, reserving ½ cup of the water. Set the noodles aside.
  • To the skillet of sauce, add the blanched broccoli and a bit of the reserved water if the sauce is too thick. Toss to coat, taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
  • To serve, add the noodles to the sauce, gently combine, then distribute among 4 plates, garnish with basil, and enjoy.

    feels like you really enjoying an italian meal. The noodles are a bit different and took a minute to get used to, but I’m hooked now. I make this almost every week now. Sometimes I add shrimp or mussels.
