Creamy Shirataki Pasta with Smoked Trout Ribbons

I literally discovered Shirataki a week ago on Faithful to Nature’s website. As a gluten-intolerant person who loves her pasta and starch, eating can become really tricky and stressful. Shirataki noodles are made from the konjac yam. It is very low in calories but quite high in fibre making it a go-to for the health-conscious, it is naturally sugar-free, gluten-free and very easy to make. I made it with a lovely gluten-free cheese sauce. Check the full recipe below:
