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...

Ingredients:
2 packages House Foods Tofu Shirataki Fettuccine Shaped Noodle Substitute
1 cup chopped onion
2 tsp. chopped garlic
One 6.5-oz. can chopped clams in clam juice (not drained)

2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes, or more to taste
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
Optional seasonings: salt, black pepper
Optional topping: chopped fresh parsley
