Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

No one wine will suit every pasta dish. Pasta in a tomato-based sauce will usually work well with a medium-bodied red, such as a montepulciano or chianti. Pasta with seafood or pesto will fare better with a light-bodied white, such as a pinot grigio. Cheese-heavy pasta can pair well with red or white - you might try a sangiovese wine for hard cheeses and a chardonnay for soft cheeses. We may be able to make a better recommendation if you ask again with a specific pasta dish.

Instructions

Microwave the noodles for 1 minute on high, drain them thoroughly, pat them dry, and set aside. Add the soy sauce, rice wine, and chili sauce to your protein, toss to coat (or mix thoroughly if youre using ground meat) and set aside. Spray a non-stick skillet with a little vegetable oil and heat it over a high flame. Add the ginger and cook for about 30 seconds until it starts to become fragrant. Toss in your veggies and cook, stirring, until theyre al dente nearly (but not quite) done. Add the scallions and your protein and continue to stir-fry until its cooked through (about 1-2 minutes for tofu, soy, or turkey). Add the noodles, sprinkle with a tiny bit more soy sauce (about 2 tsp.), and cook about 1 minute until the shirataki are heated through. Turn into a serving bowl, drizzle the sesame oil over the noodles, and toss.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can easily replace regular noodles with whole wheat noodles to add a little extra fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals to this dish. Just don't make the mistake of assuming that because the pasta is whole wheat, you can eat as much as you want. The calories and the effect on your blood sugar is not so drastically different!

  • You can reduce your sodium intake by choosing lower-sodium soy sauce.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!

  • Protein powders aren't all created equal. Do you research when deciding whether to purchase whey, soy, hemp, or another protein powder. Many flavored versions contain artificial sweeteners, so read the ingredient label if that's a concern.

Price Tips

  • Protein powder can be expensive. You can also get a protein boost by adding quark, cottage cheese, greek yogurt, and other high-protein foods in smoothies, pancakes, dips, sauces, etc. Experiment!

Cooking Tips

  • Keeping ginger on hand all the time doesn't mean you have to buy bottled ginger. Instead, freeze fresh ginger whole and grate what you need while its still frozen.

  • The best method for cooking pasta is pretty controversial, but most sources seem to reach a consensus. Check out our lesson on how to cook pasta in the academy.
