We're On the Clam!
Serving Size: 1/2 of recipe (about 1 1/2 cups)
PointsPlus® value 4*
HG Alternative: To make this with high-fiber fettuccine or linguine instead of tofu shirataki, prepare 4 oz. uncooked pasta per package directions. Then each serving will have 335 calories, 7g fat, 644mg sodium, 55g carbs, 6g fiber, 6g sugars, 15.5g protein, and a PointsPlus® value of 9*. Still way better than the average linguine with clam sauce!
Pasta with white clam sauce is a classic Italian dish. But it typically shells out way too many calories. Bad pun, GREAT recipe. Check it out...
