This is my low carb version of a recipe from Tyler Florence's Food 911 TV show. He used regular pasta with his sauce and I decided to give shirataki noodles a try. I'm not wild about the texture of the noodles, but the sauce has a nice flavor. I made the mistake of heating my sauce which caused it to break. If you follow the instructions, adding the hot water just before mixing and serving it, it should be fine. I will give this another try sometime using Zucchini "Noodles" cut with my julienne peeler.
