Default Tried something new - foodwise

This past summer, the hubs and I went to Cincinnati. We went to a restaurant called "the Yardhouse". I wanted to try their yard house mac'n'cheese, but of course, it was real pasta, so nope.

Last night, I made a version that I think was nearly zero carb.

I used three packs of tofu shiitake noodles, 3 cups cream, 10 strips of bacon, all chopped up, a pound of mushrooms and about 10 ounces of cheese. It called for cheddar, Monterey Jack and Gouda, but I only had mozzerella.

I rinsed the noodles, then in a pot, heated the cream, then melted the cheese into it. Once the cream was warm, and the cheese was melted, I put my cast iron pan on the heat and cooked the chopped bacon. While that cooked, I chopped the mushrooms. Once the bacon was done, I cooked the mushrooms for a short time. Then the noodles went in a casserole dish, topped by the cheese sauce. I baked that for about 30 minutes, them topped it with the bacon and mushrooms and sprayed truffle oil on it.

It was soooooooooooo good!

I make my own fake-a-rooni and cheese using cauliflower. Been a while but it is delicious!

I got my Ziti Miracle Noodles a couple of days ago. I really like them they are hollow tubes just like the real deal. (Although they could have been cut better, some were pretty long.) So last night I made mac 'n cheese with them. It was to die for!!!!

I altered the recipe a bit:

1 pkg of Ziti miracle noodle (7oz)
1/2 c HWC
2 Tbsp Bel Gioioso 4 cheese shred (asiago, fontina,parm,provolone)
2 Tbsp Pecorino Romano hand shredded
4 Tbsp Cheddar Cheese hand shredded
1.5 oz Cream Cheese
salt/pepper/cayenne/onion powder/garlic powder to taste

I prepped the noodles then melted all the cheeses in a sauce pan with the HWC. I added the noodles to the pot and let them simmer a bit (probably could just cook this way and it would be fine too).

It was a little soupy (next time I will only use 1/4 c HWC) so I spooned about a tablespoon each of the dust from the bottom of the tins of freeze dried mushrooms and mixed bell peppers (Honeyville) and they soaked up the extra liquid and added great taste. Poured all into baking dish and baked 350° about 30ish min. It had a nice brown top when it came out. I had only intended to eat half of it with a couple spicy chicken wings, but it was sooooo good and so satisfied my craving for mac n' cheese that I ate it all!!!

The whole meal with a glass of wine ended up 102 g Fat/41 g Protein/7 g carbs and 1331 calories, (which doesn't bother me at all!) But what is so true for me, when I eat these noodles my next day fbg is low, today fbg was 61 (3.37)!! Next time I'll try to show some restraint and only eat half! Yeah right!
