Easy to prepare, rich, creamy, pumpkin fettuccine with gluten free, healthy tofu noodles. 10 minute meal!
This creamy pumpkin fettuccine is so quick and easy to make, and has such rich, bold flavor, you will just love it. I mean it seriously comes together in under 10 minutes, making it as easy as boxed Mac and Cheese, but so much yummier and grown up!

So let’s talk about these noodles for a second. Have you tried them? You should, they are a great healthy alternative to traditional white flour noodles. They come in all the traditional noodle shapes and varieties, are almost ready to serve, and must be refrigerated.
I really like these noodles because of a few factors:
Health: We all know I love my treats, so when I can find a healthier version of something I try to take it so that I can indulge a little without compromising my health. The tofu shirataki noodles are a great place to get healthy. They are:
- Non-GMO Project Verified
- Kosher certified
- Low cal/low carb
- Cholesterol free
- Sugar free
- Dairy free
Texture: They are certified gluten free, and thus are a great option for those with gluten intolerance or allergy, but they do a great job of mimicking the traditional wheat flour noodles.
The noodles are slightly chewier than a traditional noodle, which is not unexpected since they are made from tofu. And if you do not pat them dry well enough they can be a little “slimy” but by following package directions you are going to have a great noodle. To find prep tips go here.
Flavor: Much like tofu, these noodles do not have a real distinctive flavor, rather they take on the flavors of the sauces you use.
Just know that when you open the package, they stink. Kind of bad too, but it says right on the package that they do, and gives you directions for how to make sure they don’t taste like that “authentic” smell. Easy enough, you basically rinse them well, and pat them dry.
Ease of Use: It takes only a couple of minutes to prepare these noodles for consumption, which is so nice for me as traditional noodles require 8-10 minutes after the water comes to a boil.
