cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper to oil; cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is tender. Stir in mushrooms and garlic; cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are tender and liquid evaporates. Add remaining sauce ingredients; reduce heat. Cover; simmer, stirring occasionally, while preparing noodles.
  • 2 In 3-quart saucepan, heat 2 quarts water to boiling. Add noodles. Cook 2 to 3 minutes; drain. On heatproof plate lined with paper towels, place noodles (to prevent them from sticking together). Divide warm noodles evenly among 6 bowls. For each serving, top noodles with 1 cup sauce and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons Parmesan cheese.

Expert Tips

Shirataki are very low-carb Japanese noodles, available in spaghetti, fettuccine and angel hair varieties. They come packed in liquid. You can find them near the refrigerated produce or tofu products at grocery or specialty food stores, or at Asian markets. If you like, cut the noodles into 2- to 3-inch pieces before cooking to make them easier to eat.
