Shapely New Konjac Shirataki Noodles
Jimmy Moore
June 15, 2006

The following is a reprint from the blog "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb":
Ever since I first started blogging about the amazing low-carb Japanese wonder noodles called shirataki earlier this year, people can't seem to get enough of them. Well, they're now going to be able to enjoy a LOT more variety thanks to the release of 12 new shapes of Konjac brand of shirataki pasta noodles.

I reviewed Konjac Shirataki previously and have since made consuming it a regular part of my diet because it is so filling as well as loaded with healthy amounts of soluble fiber (a whopping 9g per bag!). If you desire weight loss or you just want to start eating something that is good for you, then Konjac shirataki noodles are HIGHLY recommended from this low-carber. :D

For some shirataki recipe ideas, check out the finalists in my recently-concluded "Livin' La Vida Shirataki" Recipe Contest. These shapely new Konjac Shirataki noodles will make eating shirataki that much more fun while you are getting the soluble fiber your diet desperately needs.

Here are some of the new shapes and my comments about each of them:

Konjac Hand Knot Pasta

This is one of the most odd-looking noodle shapes I have ever seen. Frankly, I'd never heard of "hand knot pasta" before seeing this and haven't got a clue what kind of recipe you would use this noodle in. Anyone care to enlighten me on this?

Konjac Angel Hair Pasta

Above all others, this is my favorite noodle shape. It works so well with Italian or Asian recipes and the texture is exactly like what you would expect it to be. Love it, love it, love it!

Konjac Trofie Pasta

I had never heard of this one before, but it's basically just a big thick spaghetti noodle. Again, this one woud be a great choice for Italian recipes and will absorb the spaghetti sauces, garlic, etc. very well.

Konjac Rigatoni Pasta

You know, I was thinking about how incredibly funny it is that a low-carb pasta alternative from Japan is creating all of these Italian noodle shapes. Hee hee! Who knew there was such an awareness of what rigatoni is in the Far East? :)

Konjac Lasagna Pasta

Okay, this one intrigues me more than any of the other shapes because it sounds promising. It's thick enough to be a great lasagna noodle and I will DEFINITELY look forward to making my first Konjac Shirataki lasagna very soon.

Konjac Penne Pasta

Look out macaroni & cheese fans, this pasta shape could fit the bill for you with some melted cheese to make that dish a regular one for you to eat again. Except this time, IT'S HEALTHY!!!

Konjac Sagnarelli Pasta

The first thing I thought of when I saw this pasta shape was dumplings, as in chicken & dumplings. It's certainly worth a shot and the shape and size is perfect for that kind of recipe.

Konjac Mini Pearl Pasta

Hooooowwwwdyyyy! Sorry, when I heard the name of this pasta, I immediately thought about the old television series Hee Haw. Ha! Seriously, I was hoping they would make a version of Konjac shirataki pasta that could be used as a rice substitute and this one fits the bill perfectly.

Konjac Fettuccini Pasta

Fettuccini has gotten a bad rap over the years when it has been put in combination with alfredo sauce. But now you can enjoy that famous dish without worrying about that. You've found a better way to eat it now!

Also available from Konjac, but not pictured are spaghetti, linguini, and ditalini (I don't know diddly squat about what this is!) pasta noodles. The possibilities are truly endless and all these new shapes of Konjac shirataki are yet another way to pump a little variety into your low-carb lifestyle.

You'll DEFINITELY want to stock up on these new pasta shapes, so click here to learn more about a special 20-bag Konjac Shirataki deal, which includes a mix-and-match deal, from our friends at Low-Carb Connoisseur.
