Ingredients
  • 1 butternut squash weighing about 2½ pounds
  • 1 package Fettuccine Shirataki
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ⅓ cup of chopped shallots
  • ½ cup of packed, freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup of heavy cream
  • ⅛ teaspoon of grated nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Water as needed to thin the sauce
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut the butternut squash lengthwise in half and scoop out the insides and discard them (or save the seeds and toast them).
  3. Pour ¼ cup of water into a glass or ceramic baking dish and place the butternut squash halves cut side down. Bake for 40 minutes or until a fork easily pierces the squash. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Scoop out the squash flesh from the skins and purée with a blender (work in batches or place in a bowl and use a hand blender). Discard the skins.
  5. Drain and rinse Shirataki Noodles very well. Place on paper towels to dry.
  6. Pour the olive oil into a wide skillet on medium heat. Add the shallots and sauté until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  7. Add the butternut squash purée and cook for about a minute, mixing it in with the shallots.
  8. Add the cream, a tablespoon at a time, slowly stirring it in to incorporate and to avoid lumps.
  9. Stir in the Parmesan.
  10. Add the nutmeg, salt and pepper. Add water (or chicken stock) to thin to the consistency you want.
  11. Take off heat and add the parsley and lemon juice. Cover the pan to keep warm.
  12. Pour the sauce over the Fettuccine Shirataki.
  13. Garnish with a little extra parsley and Parmesan.
  14. Serve immediately.
Notes
We like this sauce at the consistency of a chunky tomato sauce. You may like it smoother.

Ingredients
  • 1 package Angel Hair Shirataki

  • 4 asparagus spears
  • ½ cup peas, fresh or frozen
  • ½ cup snow peas

  • ¼ cup chicken broth (use vegetable broth for vegetarian option)
  • ½ cup heavy cream

Instructions
  1. Get a large pot of water boiling. Salt it well. It should taste like the sea.
  2. Fill a large bowl with ice water.
  3. Boil the broccoli for 1 minute.
  4. Add the asparagus and boil another minute.
  5. Add the snow peas and boil for 30 more seconds. Remove all the vegetables and plunge them into the ice water. Once they’re cool, drain in a colander.

  9. Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth and turn the heat to high to bring it to a boil.

  11. Turn the heat down until the cream-chicken broth mixture is just simmering, not boiling.
  12. Add the parmesan cheese and stir to combine. If the sauce seems too thick – it should be pretty thick, but not pastey – add some more chicken broth, cream or water.
  13. Transfer the Angel Hair Shirataki with tongs into the sauce and stir to combine. Add the basil now, and taste for salt. Add salt if needed.
  14. Grind some black pepper over everything and serve immediately.
