Cassi- I used 4 oz. (1/2 package) of the shiritake noodles. It counts as a condiment because there are only 20 calories in the 4 oz. serving. So it just replaced the starch. So it would be 1/2P V 1/2D and a condiment. The serving of just the carbonara looked small on the plate, but with the noodles and the side veggie I had it was really very filling.
