Miracle Noodles... Get in Me BELLY!

When my mother-in-law was visiting us a few months ago, we got some chap chae - Korean glass noodles that are delicious.  What we didn't know was the noodles needed to be warmed up before they got the soft texture we had consumed so many times at Korean restaurants.

While my mother-in-law was searching online for a remedy for our lifeless noodles, she came across these "miracle noodles" which I cannot WAIT to purchase and try!  They are a bit pricey, so it will have to wait.. but can you believe it?  NO CALORIES!  Like eating air!  Learn more here!

Update: For those unwilling to shell the cash on these miracle babies, just try spaghetti squash!  You can cook it in the oven on a bed of water until it's soft (I usually cut it in half and then turn it upside down on a sheet and cook for about 350 degrees for 20-45 minutes).  Then, you just scrape off the squash and it turns spaghetti ish and is a great substitute for noodles!

You can mix in... cooked onions (1/2 chopped and cooked until translucent or about 3 minutes, some feta (1 cup), a 16 oz can of diced tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper.  We all love it!!

Hey! So, I've had these noodles before, they're pretty good. They taste like whatever you make them with. You can actually just buy them for cheap at any Asian supermarket. Just look for shirataki noodles.
