Made this tonight and it is really good.
I used the shiritake tofu noodles in place of the spagetti.

I think when I make it again I will add some mushrooms and sweet red peppers to it.

Definitely a keeper!!

Deb - When you used the shirataki noodles, how much did you use and what was the revised exchanges on the dish?

Funny you made this tonight - I was looking at it yesterday and was thinking about making it this weekend. Thanks for being the guinea pig!

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.
