Low-Carb Shirataki-roni & Cheese

If you like macaroni & cheese, then try this low-carb shirataki recipe!

Macaroni & cheese. Mmmmmmm. For those of you who have read my book, you know how much I used to LOVE and adore this delicious high-carb treat before I started livin' la vida low-carb. It was its own food group for me and I liked it that way.

But, when the low-carb life became my permanent way of eating, mac & cheese was a thing of the past. Not anymore!

Displaying the versatility of the latest health food trend, the ever-present shirataki noodles make for an excellent way to enjoy this classic American dish without all the unnecessary carbs associated with regular pasta. Made with the House Foods brand of tofu shirataki, I have the perfect recipe from Elaine at Low Carb Connoisseur and like to call it shirataki-roni & cheese that you are sure to call YUMMY!


2 x 8 oz. packages of House Tofu Shirataki Noodles
1 large egg
½ cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. white pepper
½ tsp. hot pepper sauce

1 Tbsp. butter, melted
½ cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
½ cup seasoned dried breadcrumbs

Preheat oven to 350°.

Prepare noodles according to package directions, below. Cut into 1-inch pieces.

Lightly beat egg in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and the noodles (not topping ingredients). Stir well. Pour into a well sprayed or buttered 1 ½ quart baking dish.

In another bowl, blend topping ingredients together and sprinkle over noodle mixture.

Bake 25-30 minutes until set and the top is crisp. Serve as a side dish, light supper or breakfast item.


PREP TIME: 10-15 minutes
COOK TIME: 30 minutes

I tried a whole foods health food store and they didn't even have it. They also didn't have kefir which I wanted to try. They only had some kefir smoothies full of sugar.

I'm thinking maybe some little Chinese mom and pop place might have it. I want to try it; I'm just not having any luck.
