ICK! I've tried them 3 times in different recipes ...I've done everything that was suggested, and they are still icky. I will happily count the points for pasta! "

Same here!!! I am able to find the House Foods ones at a couple of our stores, and was SO excited to see that. I was dying for super-low-point fettucine alfredo.
Followed all the directions for making them more palatable, made the recipe. I liked the first bite. Really liked the sauce a lot. But the chewiness got to me. It was like chewing rubber for me, and I have a very strong gag reflex. So needless to say, by the second bite of my "Hungry Girlfredo," I had to spit it out before I threw up. I was kind of sad & mad. None of the creamy sauce recipes will even work for me, because underlying the nice sauces will always be the memory of the rubbery texture. I'd much rather follow the recipes but use the lowest point real pasta I can find, even if the dish costs me more points than the actual recipe.
While I won't try the other creamy dishes with tofu shirataki, I would still like to try the zucchini pancakes. I wonder if "frying" the noodles up into this form might work better for me.
Very happy for everyone who loves tofu shirataki. I am honestly jealous, because who doesn't want to enjoy a 1-2 point pasta recipe? I just wanted to chime in for the sake of those who don't like it, to let them know that they're not alone.
