Get the flavor of baked macaroni & cheese without all the carbs

It’s no secret one of my favorite foods in the world before I started livin’ la vida low-carb was macaroni & cheese. Christine used to make two boxes of this stuff for me to eat in one sitting back in my sinful high-carb days prior to 2004 when I gobbled up the nearly 200g carbs per box that “meal” gave me. These days I wouldn’t dare dream of eating that many carbohydrates in a day or consuming regular pasta every again. Your body just doesn’t need it.

That’s why I was glad to see a low-carb recipe from our friends at Low-Carb Connoisseur for a macaroni & cheese substitute that looks like it could fill your desire for this favorite comfort food while keeping the carbs low on the totem pole. Using the low-carb House Tofu Shirataki Spaghetti Noodles, you’ll never miss enjoying this favorite dish again. ENJOY!
