Miracle Noodle Garlic and Herb Fettuccini
Garlic and Herb is the same as regular fettuccini but seasoned with garlic and mixed herbs. The natural aroma of shirataki is reduced. The flavor is light, which makes this noodle perfect for dishes that emphasize simple flavors.
We use this noodle mainly for dishes with chicken and beef, especially stir-frys.
