Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo with Spinach was always my favorite carboholic pasta dish. However, fear not because there are plenty of fake pasta substitutes available to feed your cravings. Today we tried another Shirataki dish. Last time we did a stir fry but today I wanted to go more towards classic Italian.
Since the inspiration for this dish was chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, I decided to use Fettuccine Shirataki noodles. These are available in most grocery and specialty stores. Make sure to look in the refrigerated section near the vegetables. If all else fails, of course Amazon has Shirataki Noodles.
While the chicken is cooking, you also want to pan fry about 300g of frozen spinach. Its important to cook this on the stove as opposed to the microwave to get rid of the moisture. If cooked in the microwave they will have too much water for later in the process.
It is VERY important to rinse the Shirataki noodles thoroughly. I have no idea what crap they store these in but they smell. I normally rinse them several times with cold water while the meat is cooking. They don’t maintain that smell after cooking but its important to not skip this step.
The next step is to prepare the sauce. I just use the lowest carb alfredo sauce in a jar. I add extra seasoning cause their sauces are often quite bland. In this case I added salt, pepper and two tablespoons of minced garlic. Stir this to combine.
After the sauce warms up a bit and the spices have incorporated, stir in the spinach. You want to fully combine the spinach to where there is no more white and the spinach has spread throughout the whole sauce.
Since the noodles do not cook for very long, I prep everything else first and then get the noodles going. Get out your wok and add some bacon grease. Then throw in the washed noodles and flash fry them for a few minutes.
