Because sometimes we all crave a big bowl of pasta!
Its starting to get a little cold outside, and with the weather changing so are the cravings. Salads don't sound as appetizing, and a big plate of pasta is everything our heart ever desired. But knowing the high amount of carbs that a good hearty bowl of pasta can have, it seems only right we came up with a healthy lower carb option for those cold "we want to eat the world" kind of nights.
We used our favorite miracle noodles (shiritaki noodles) again, this time using the angel hair version of them instead of rice like last time. It is a relatively easy recipe, and should take about 30 min to prep and cook. Enjoy!

3 cloves of garlic
1 small yellow onion
12 leaves of basil
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 Bag Miracle Noodles Angel Hair
Crushed Red Pepper
1. Wash and rinse thorougly the miracle angel hair noodles. Pat dry.
2. Chop 2 garlic cloves, and 1/4 of your small onion ( leave the other garlic clove and remaining onion for sauce). Sautee chopped onion, garlic and chili flakes on a table spoon of olive oil, until onion is translucent. Add shrimp and cook until no longer pink (3 min). Make sure you don't overcook to avoid rubbery shrimp. Remove from stove and set aside.
3. Chop tomatoes and basil into small pieces. Take the remaining garlic, onion, tomatoes, and basil and let it simmer in skillet on low-med heat for around 8-10 min. Add a pinch of salt.
4. Add cleaned and patted dried noodles to tomato sauce. Add shrimp. Mix throughly and serve.
5. Top with a cute basil leave. Crushed Pepper and salt to taste*
Note* We cook with very little salt (or no salt) at home, so please adjust the salt to your liking.
