Fettuccine drenched in Alfredo sauce; topped with parmesan cheese and parsley flakes is the perfect comfort food to me!  But is it low carb? That’s the question I have been asking myself lately, as I enter my second week on Atkin’s low carb diet.
Although I don’t count my carbs, I still check the nutritional facts on packaging to make sure the foods I’m about to eat contain the lowest carbohydrates possible!
I created my low carb fettuccine Alfredo noodles using Nasoya mushroom noodles. These noodles contain only one net carb. In order to figure the total net carbs on various foods, you subtract the total amount of carbohydrates from fiber, and that will give you the net carbs in packaged food items.  The Alfredo sauce in this recipe is made using a combination of heavy cream and parmesan cheese. What are some of your favorite noodle recipes?
