Wild Wood Tomato & Herb Angel Hair Pasta Slim
Up until now I have not been a huge fan of the shiritake noodles made with tofu. Aside from the ones I found in New York, which, unfortunately, like so many other yummy products are not available in Canada, I've found the kinds I have tried here not to my liking. The texture just didn't do it for me. This has been disappointing because the Asian-style ones, that I love, aren't really well suited for Italian pasta recipes.
Recently, however, I've been noticing Wild Wood's new Tomato & Herb Angel Hair Pasta Slim in grocery and health food stores. Something about them piqued my interest and I decided to give them another try. Last week I made some, served with a red clam sauce, and topped with garlic sauteed kale for lunch. I loved them!
Definitely a must try. Just be sure to use the 'drying' method for the noodles, by putting them in a very hot, dry fry pan after rinsing them, and 'cook' until all excess liquid is gone. Also, make sure your sauce is very thick as these noodles don't absorb liquid, so otherwise you will end up with a soupy dish.
