Of course! although you might wanna make sure and wait for another commenter to confirm it as I am unsure. Better yet, why don't you contact the Nutrisystem guys because they can give you help better...
Can give you loads of recipes.. I love to experiment.. I'm gonna do.. peppers.onions,mushroom, garlic and mrs dash of course.. or broccoili and garlic or zucchini, yellow squash diced tomatoes, garlic and my favorite mrs dash.. you can use any veggies you like I just like my garlic an mrs dash on all my experiments. Instead of shrimp you can use your protein of chicken sliced thin and add that with garlic an veggies too..
Hi Lynn - could you send me some of your favorite recipes for the noodles? I have some on order and I should have them in a few days -.
Thanks a million.
I LOVE my shirataki's!! I add them to the Nutrisystem meals sometimes tobulk them up. Esp the lunches that have noodles in them. I use a 1/2 package at a time as a free food. Yummy!!..

Where do you get these noodles? Sounds like I need them! all of the recipes sound GREAT!.
Either a japanese store or on line at Hungrygirl.com..
How have I not heard of these before? THese are WonderFULL and thanks for the link to recipies .....
Cool!!! I was just wondering about these. I'm going to try some now. Seems like a good way to bulk up those meals that have alot of sauce...
I am new to NS. How can I incorporate these noodles on my plan? I'm not sure what a free food is. How do I count these noodles..
Ooh, the one thing I've found with these noodles...you need to RINSE them. And RINSE THEM WELL! When you think they are rinsed...RINSE A LITTLE MORE!.
Then, they soak up the flavor of pretty much anything. There are recipes on HungryGirl's site that are great. You can do a search there..
To the poster about free-foods. You can have up to three free foods a day. A free food is 20 calories or less and a trace of fat. If you search out free food you'll find lots of posts on it. One serving of the noodles is 20 calories, so if you had JUST the noodles it would be free. I generally add them to entrees, or make a meal myself following the Nutrisystem guidelines...
I like the spaghetti shaped ones, but I can't get down with the fettuccine shaped. I wish I could. The "Hungry girlfredo" recipe for fettuccine alfredo was really good. I just couldn't take the feel of the noodles in my mouth! lol..
I WAS JUST READING THROUGH THIS AND WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD SEND ME SOME RECIEPES ALSO. I HAVE THEM BUT JUST DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THEM LOL.
THANKS IN ADVANCE.
If you live in NY or CT, they carry them at Stew Leanord's. Personally, I haven't been able to get past the smell...but haven't tried them again since being on NS. They might not be too bad mixed in with an Nutrisystem entree that contains noodles...
I order these by the case from our local Whole Foods store. I use them with dinner entrees that have a lot of gravy or sauce. They are particularly great with the rotini and meatballs - lust like real spaghetti!.
Having read the warnings about the smell when you first open them, I was expecting to be knocked on the floor, but it really wasn't too bad. I follow the directions on the package, rinsing well, then boiling them for two or three minutes. Before I pour the entree on top, I use kitchen scissors to cut them into smaller pieces since they are rather long..
With only 40 calories for a whole bag, I count them as a semi-vegetable serving..
I just found these in my grocery store in the tofu part of the produce section. Tried the hungrygirl recipe for fettucini alfredo- and I guess it's just me but I was not a fan. They tasted fine and looked fine, but the texture was NOT good in my opinion- waay too rubbery. I have one more bag and maybe I'll give them a shot but just wanted to mention my opinon because I would advise against spending a lot of money to order them online like I was thinking about doing...
Shaena, we pretty much shared the same experience. I tried baking the things! Anything to make those low cal noodles work! lol (I was dieting on my own then) But like I said, the fettuccine ones are NO good. Texture wise. The spaghetti shape is much easier to handle! And if you chop them up and throw them in foods to bulk them up, it's not so bad. But trying to eat them as the meal, I can't handle!..
While they're called "tofu" noodles they really are made from a Japanese yam. My grocery store carries them near the real tofu items. They're great to add for additional bulk. Pretty much absorb whatever flavors are in the other ingredients...
