I recently wrote about my introduction to Shirataki Noodles, which have now formed an essential part of my low carb cooking repertoire.
Over the next few weeks (and possibly months and years) I'll be sharing some recipe variations that you can try using Miracle Noodles – a brand of shirataki pasta. But to start with, I wanted to show you how little you have to add to them to make them into a meal by themselves. Butter, cheese and black pepper are all you need to make a super tasty dish that doesn't contain any carbs. Winner, winner, noodle dinner!

How to Make Buttery Zero Carb Noodles
Rinse the noodles under cold water over a sink. I have used Fettucine Miracle Noodles for this recipe.
Drain and place in a bowl, then cover with boiling water. Let sit in the water for 5 minutes, then drain again. Melt the butter in a hot skillet, and add the noodles and a little salt.
Cook for just a few minutes until most of the water has evaporated and the butter has been absorbed. If you're in a rush you could skip this step but I like how buttery it makes the noodles. Transfer to a serving bowl and add grated Parmesan, freshly ground black pepper and some fresh basil or parsley leaves.Buttery Zero Carb Noodles #lowcarb #zerocarb Click To Tweet
As a light lunch I can happily just eat this on its own. But it would also make a great side dish to some grilled chicken or fish!
