It's cheesy... it's creamy... it's Totally PUMPin' Fettuccine!






Ingredients:

1 package House Foods Tofu Shirataki, Fettuccine Shaped Noodle Substitute
1/2 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
1/4 cup light plain soymilk
1/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
1/4 cup fat-free chicken broth
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
1 tsp. reduced-fat parmesan-style topping
1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. salt
dash pepper
Optional: additional salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:
Rinse and drain Shirataki noodles well. Pat dry. Place noodles in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave for 1 minute. Drain excess liquid from noodles, and pat them until thoroughly dry. Cut noodles up a bit using a knife or kitchen shears, and then set aside.

In a separate dish, combine soymilk, pumpkin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well and set aside.

Bring a small saucepan to high heat. Add chicken broth, onions, chopped garlic, and the cheese wedge half. Stirring occasionally to break up the cheese, cook until broth has mostly evaporated (2 - 4 minutes). Reduce heat to medium, and continue to cook for just a minute or so, until onions and garlic begin to brown.

Next, add the pumpkin mixture. Stir until sauce is thoroughly blended and hot. Then add the sauce to your noodles, and stir well. If you like, season to taste with more salt and pepper. Then top with the parm-style topping!
