  • 6 oz, raw (yield after cooking) Italian Sausage
  • 0 1/4 cup Heavy Cream
  • 3 piece Sun-Dried Tomatoes
  • 8 oz Tofu Shirataki Noodles
  • 1 cup Green Snap Beans


  1. Sauté the Italian sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until browned and cooked through.  Drain off excess fat and add the cream and heat until almost boiling.  Dice the sun-dried tomatoes and add to the cream and sausage mixture.  Cook for 2 additional minutes and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste).  Remove from heat and set aside. 
  2. Place a small pot half filled with water over medium-high heat.  Rinse the noodles in hot water for 2-3 minutes then add to the boiling water.  Cut beans into 1-inch pieces and add to the water, boil together for 3 minutes.  Drain well. 
  3. Pour the sauce over the noodles and green beans.  Add grated Parmesan cheese if desired and serve immediately.
