I just tried it for the first time this week, and WOW am I impressed that 20 little calories can be so chewy and filling!! I'm definitely going to be trying some of the Hungry Girl recipes that rely on those noodles.

I also use them with La Choy's chicken chow mein -- 1 cup chow mein (100 calories) with 4 oz. (half-package) of the tofu noodles. I liked the crispy noodles that I used to serve the chow mein over, but they were 130 calories per half-cup, and contained trans fats. With the tofu noodles, I'm down to 20 calories and no trans fats. I lose the crunch, but it's still plenty tasty.

I'll have to look for this around here. I've started using quinoa pasts...gluten free, but it's definitely not as low cal as the tofu pasta.

I live in the Midwest, and shop at the Hy-Vee grocery store chain here. Hy-Vee has the House Foods shiratake in their "Health Market" section, with the organics, soy milk, etc. Specifically, it's in the refrigerated (not frozen) section of that area.

What part of the store do I find these in? I heard about them on, I think Rachel Ray, but didn't see them the last trip to the store.

I love 'em! Our grocery store carries the House Foods brand Shirataki tofu noodles. I snarf the whole bag (8 oz., which is two servings, but only 20 calories per serving) with either a quarter-cup of lo-cal spaghetti sauce, or 4 tablespoons of salsa. Yum! Only 60 - 75 calories, but satisfying and filling.

What do you think of the tofu pastas/noodles? I want to give them a try. Any tips or recipes that are good?
