  2. Excellent! Doubled the recipe. We all loved it. I did make a few changes, ie I added a tsp of lemon zest to the sauce, and added a 1/2-cup peas and 3 strips of cooked, crumbled turkey bacon in with the noodles. The onion is a must in my book, and my family did not like the parsley; we agreed that minced basil would be better. I used Well Lean Shirataki fettucine noodles, which don’t have the fishy smell or chewiness of most brands. Couldn’t tell them apart from regular noodles with the sauce on them. Great recipe! Add the bacon and peas for authenticity and flavor.
