Healthiest VEGAN Spaghetti Ever {Pasta Zero Review}

Friday, February 14, 2014

I was planning on having just snacky foods for dinner, like we normally do when Bryson is at work but then I got these noodles. You guys, they are a game changer. The bomb diggity noodles are only 15 calories like 0 everything else but fiber and taste BETTER than normal spaghetti noodles. 

I have been dying to try them ever since I stumbled on them I have been on a mad search. I honestly forgot about them because nowhere around me carried them. When I found them it was because I was picking up for tofurkey deli slices and cheez for sandwiches and there they were in their 4g Carbs and 0g Fat glory. I quick grabbed some tofurkey italian sausage pushed my cart filled with babies and zero fat noodles over to the fresh herb isle only to find there was no basil (or arugala...but that's for another day). What grocery store runs out of basil?! Apparently a lot of guys are planning a romantic italian dinner for their lady frens. Oregano it is. 

The tofurkey italian sausage can't be played down either. It was amazing and even had the same texture as sausage without the casing. One piece is a bit high in calories so Lo and I shared but it has 30 g protein and is low in fat and carbs for a sausage (12-13 g) so that's super awesome also but really, the star of the dish was the noodles. 

When I got home and opened the bag of noodles I was a liiiittttlllleeee worried. They smelt way fishy, which threw me off because there are no fish in them. I read the ingredients and saw that there was konjac in it and it all made sense. Konjac is a plant but it smells really fishy. As soon as I rinsed the noodles (I so didn't rinse them) and boiled them for a couple minutes the smell was completely gone. 

While they were boiling I cut 1 tofurkey sausage into slices pan seared on both sides with 1 large minced garlic clove until they were dark brown. Then I added two serving of basil spaghetti sauce and some spicy spaghetti seasoning (this is the only way I'll eat spaghetti) dumped in the drained noodles, mixed around and it was done! The thing that took the longest was waiting for the water to boil! 

These noodles are seriously amazing. I will definitely be making them again. Unfortunately, they only have fettuccine and spaghetti noodles but I can't wait until they get more!
