Preheat oven to 400 degreesโฃ 2. Prep your shirataki noodles by rinsing them well, then sauteing them in a hot pan for 2-3 minutes. โฃ 3. Sautรฉ your mushrooms in a separate panโฃ 4. In a large bowl, place your fat free cream cheese & microwave until it is a spreadable consistency โฃ 5. Combine the rest of the ingredients in the bowl one at a time, saving the spinach and cheese. โฃ 6.

Finally stir in the mozzarella cheese & place in a sprayed baking dish. โฃ 8. Bake for 15 minutes ๐Ÿ™‚ โฃ 9. Top with parmesan & extra cheese if your macros allow & let cool for a few minutes so you donโ€™t burn your tongue!โฃ โฃ *I found the pesto mix at the grocery store when I was looking around for what I *COULD* find when stores were empty. It was next to the eggs Benedict/salad dressing sauce dry mix packetsโฃ โฃ Substitution ideas: โฃ โ€”canโ€™t find milk? Add some greek yogurt. โฃ โ€”canโ€™t find a specific cheese? Sub out with a different cheese! โฃ โ€”canโ€™t find chicken? Use any kind of protein you can find, or leave it out and serve this as a side dish! โฃ
