This time round, I’m using shirataki rice noodles which contain 10 calories per 100g serving, which is about 1/3 the calorie content of normal spaghetti noodles. I bought mine from the Japanese dried goods section at NTUC. The yellow hue of the noodles (made with natural pumpkin food colouring) resembles spaghetti visually more than the zero-calorie translucent white shirataki noodles.

Preparing Rice Shirataki Noodles
Drain the shirataki noodles from the pouch. Boil the noodles with some clean water on the stove for 2-3 minutes (pictured above). This will remove the fishy konjac smell of the noodles.
