Super Low Calorie Miracle Noodle Pasta Recipe!! 3 Point Value

Creamy Red Peppers and Broccoli

I am SO in love with the Miracle Noodles!!! The recipe possibilities are endless, and I am blown away by what can be done with this zero calorie pasta!! The best part is, I can really chow down on this stuff – I mean REALLY CHOW DOWN, and still stay within my Weight Watchers Points! One of the worst parts of dieting (and the part that causes us all to cheat) is the fact that we often don’t feel full or satisfied from the low calorie meals. And that’s what I adore about Miracle Noodles. You can eat a LOT of it!!! Plus, if you bulk it up with lots of veggies, you can really get a a lot of bang for your buck, so to speak. So you feel like you are being bad…but you are actually being good. Here’s an amazing yummy Miracle Noodle Recipe that has just 3 Points for each HUGE serving!!

Creamy Pasta with Roasted Red Peppers and Broccoli

Ingredients:
4 packs of any Miracle Noodle Pasta (I recommend the Rigatoni or Fetuccini)
2 tbsp. olive oil
4 wedges of Laughing Cow Light Cheese (preferably the Swiss flavored)
1/2 tsp. hot red pepper flakes
1 pound broccoli florets (6 cups)
2 6-oz. jars whole pimientos or roasted peppers, drained and diced
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp of pepper
3 garlic cloves, minced

Serves 4
Each serving equals just 3 Weight Watchers Points

Directions:
Warm the oil garlic, and red pepper flakes over medium heat for two minutes. Add the broccoli and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water and cover. Cook broccoli until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.
Drain and rinse the pasta and DRY THOROUGHLY with paper towels. Put the pasta in a microwave safe bowl and cover top the pasta with the Laughing Cow wedges. Microwave unto cheese has softened almost to the point of completely melting, approximately 1 minute. Then,, mix the cheese in very well with the pasta. Next, toss the pasta with the diced peppers. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the broccoli over pasta, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve. Enjoy!

  1. Sounds great do you know the carb portion

  2. It would be great to find low calorie menus with out red peppers. Actually without any peppers at all. Suggestions of another tasy, colorful ingredient as a substitute for those who have allergy issues with peppers would be wonderful

  3. These are like $3.00 a bag on the site! That would make this recipe cost over $12.00 just for the pasta! Are you sure you used 4 bags? I would like to try these, but they are very expensive.

    • They are pretty pricey, unfortunately. Try checking your local health food grocery store (like Whole Foods, Gelson's, Sprouts or Henry's Market) for them. There is also another similar brand called Shirataki Noodles, and they are a little bit less $$.

  4. I found them earlier this week at our Earth Fare in Knoxville, another brand but it's the same thing. Love these!

  5. I just came across this post and I realize that it's over a year old, but I wanted to make sure you all knew that Miracle Noodles are simply Shirataki noodles. They're made from the Japanese Konjac plant (strangely the same plant that makes up the principal component of Lipozene, the weight loss drug).

    They are made in two different ways in the US: the traditional, which has 0 calories, or there is a tofu-based noodle that contains about 20 calories per serving.

    Here's the good news: they're cheap and they're widely available. You can get them at Whole Foods, Cub Foods, Trader Joe's, and a whole slew of other grocery stores. I think Byerly's has them, too.

  6. Where do u get these? i live in pittsburgh! i feel like we have nothing here! We have a whole foods but its like 15 min away. We have a store called giant eagle and ehh. But where do i find these lovely noodles?! ps I don't like the website where u can buy them from

    Just wanted to tell you how amazing this recipes was. I didn't use Miracle noodles — I used heartland whole wheat so that increaded the points to at least 7 — I also added mushrooms which may have increased it another point. It's cool though, I had some to burn at the end of the day!

    thanks for another terrific recipe!!!!!
