“This is an inspiration from Sugarpea and her recipe: Bowtie Pasta with Broccoli and Broccoli sauce. If you're trying to loose weight, are on a low carb diet or just trying to eat healthier check out House Foods Shirataki noodles. What a great alternative to pasta. It's quick to fix, so good for you and tastes GREAT! UPDATE: I made a couple of modifications to this recipe to make a LOT less fat and more healthy thanks to my reviewer.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the broccoli buds into small florets, leaving as short a stem as possible and set aside.
  2. Cut the remaining broccoli stems into 1/2" pieces; steam the broccoli pieces, the diced onion and the garlic, in 1 cup of lightly salted water for 10 minutes or until very soft.
  3. Meanwhile, place shirataki noodles in a colander, rinse in water thorourghly and drain. At this point I use my kitchen scissors to cut the noodles into bite sized pieces.
  4. Place the chicken broth, reserved florets and shirataki noodles into a small pot and steam or boil 4 to 5 minutes, retaining the bright green color and a bit of crunch; drain liquid and reserve.
  5. In a food processor, puree the cooked broccoli, onion and garlic until very smooth, adding a bit of the reserved pasta broth if needed to make a smooth sauce; add feta cheese, pulse until melted; add salt & pepper to taste.
  6. Pour warm sauce over the shirataki noodles & broccoli and stir gently to combine; plate and sprinkle with extra feta cheese if desired.
