Low-Carb Buttered Noodles with Smoked Oysters and Baby Greens

Posted on

Note from Connie: Today it’s my pleasure to share another yummy recipe from my friend Angelika Ilina, who has created a healthy, low-carb, no-sugar version of a meal you can prepare for your honey and you. 

As you’ll notice, this recipe features oysters, which are often considered an aphrodisiac.

In addition, Angelika’s recipe contains Shirataki or Miracle noodles, which allow you to still have pasta and be low-carb, as I shared here five years ago.

As you’ll note, this recipe contains no gluten-filled noodles.
