Konjac Shirataki With Homemade Marinara Sauce
Jimmy Moore
April 22, 2006

The following is a reprint from the blog "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb":

Italian food lovers will flip for this made-from-scratch low-carb dish

Konjac shirataki noodles have proven to be quite versatile when used in all kinds of recipes. I have seen them used in Asian dishes, Italian dishes, and even in dessert dishes. Why else has the popularity of these amazing low-carb Japanese noodles soared in 2006 with so many more people just finding out about them for the very first time?! Welcome to shirataki-mania!!!

With about a week left since I extended the deadline to April 30, 2006 in the "Livin' La Vida Shirataki Recipe Contest," the competition is heating up and I'm not gonna lie to you -- THERE ARE SOME REALLY GOOD RECIPES IN THIS CONTEST!!!

But if you think you've got what it takes to compete for a chance to win a FREE THREE-MONTH SUPPLY OF KONJAC SHIRATAKI noodles or three ONE-WEEK SUPPLY OF KONJAC SHIRATAKI noodles for the runner-up winners, then take your best shot. The recipe entry phase will conclude at 11:59pm EST on Sunday, April 30, 2006 and the recipe finalists will be featured on my blog the first week of May where YOU will have the opportunity to select who the winners will be. Stay tuned and keep sending me your recipes!

Again, to get your mind thinking about shirataki recipes, here's another superb one from our friends at Low-Carb Connoisseur. Bring back those good memories of eating spaghetti with your family when you make this healthy Konjac Shirataki with homemade marinara sauce recipe! Mmm mmm!


1 lb Konjac Angel Hair Shirataki noodles
1 c Fresh Basil Leaves
12 lg Plum Tomatoes
3 tb Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 lg Garlic Cloves
1/2 ts Salt
1/4 ts Ground Black Pepper

Drain and rinse Konjac shirataki with cold water. Coarsely chop basil. Peel and seed tomatoes, then coarsely chop. Mince garlic.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper and garlic to skillet; cook covered until thickened for about 8 min. DO NOT OVERCOOK.

Add basil leaves to sauce; stir to heat through. Pour over Konjac shirataki; mix to combine. May be served hot or chilled.

Servings: 4
