Sausage and Bacon Pasta with NoodleSlim Fettuccine

My search for low calorie alternatives to carbohydrates continues and when the nice people at NoddleSlim sent me a sample to try, I decided to create a new recipe around them. 

The NoddleSlim products are made from Glucomannan which is a fibre from the root of the Konjac plant. It has been popular in Japan and China as a food source for many years. The best news about the NoodleSlim products for anyone following the Weightwatchers diet is that they are zero Smartpoints in value. This really inspired me to create my recipe.

Sausage and Bacon Pasta

400g tin of chopped tomatoes
20g tomato paste
1/2 red onion
3 garlic cloves
2 reduced fat sausages
2 reduced fat bacon medallions
1 packet of NoodleSlim Fettuccine 
Low fat cooking spray
Fresh or dried basil
Parmesan Cheese

1.chop the onion and garlic. Feel free to use less garlic if you prefer a lighter flavour.

2. Lightly cover the bottom of a pan with the cooking spray and then cook the garlic and onion for about 4 minutes or until it starts to change colour.

3. Add the chopped tomatoes and stir until combined with the onion and garlic.

4. Add 20g tomato paste and stir until mixed. The tomato paste helps thicken the sauce.

5. Add basil to taste and reduce the heat. Leave the sauce to simmer for about 20 minutes. Stir periodically.

6. Grill the sausages and bacon and then chop into sections.

7. Prepare the NoodleSlim Fettuccine by removing it from the packet, draining it and then rinsing under warm water.

8. Five minutes before the sauce is going to be ready, add the sausage, bacon and Fettucine to it and stir until fully combined. The NoddleSlim products do not need cooking so this enables the sauce to heat them up.

9. Serve with grated Parmesan.

I was really pleased with how this recipe turned out especially as it works out at only 9 Smartpoints for a really filling meal. You could reduce that to 7 by leaving off the Parmesan.

I particularly loved the NoodleSlim fettuccine and it had a lovely soft texture similar to eating ordinary pasta. The fact that it doesn't need cooking is a great bonus. I can't wait to try their other products and I'm already thinking of recipes for them.

You can order all the NoodleSlim products from their website at and I would definitely recommend trying them. 

Speak to you soon
