Carba-nada fettuccine with mushrooms and kale. 1/5/22

Fettuccine with onions, garlic, mushrooms, and kale

I am so loving this carba-nada pasta. We have been eating the fusilli and have now tried the fettuccine. It cooks in about three minutes and you can have quite a bit since it has lower calories and carbs. In fact I considered not eating my whole bowlful because I was full. (I did, however, power through and eat the whole thing! Will I never learn!?)

I have recently been buying the shredded kale from Trader Joe’s. I really like it in salads, soups, and main dishes. The mouthfuls are smaller than with regular prepackaged kale and there are almost no annoying stems.

For WW folks, you can have 3 ounces for 4 PP. That is a far cry from the 9 PP that regular pasta would cost. Plus it tastes good! Today I made my null soup for lunch which is all vegetables and chicken breast meat in chicken stock. I added 1 ounce of the fettuccine which really bulked up the soup and added only 1PP which was negated by the ton of vegetables. Another win!
