Tortilla pasta..Toodles..:)

I was reading on another site where a lady sliced up a lowcarb tortilla with a pizza wheel and made noodles. She put them in a bowl, then added sauce and
nuked them until the sauce was hot/warm. Then ate it..

Hey..I did this tonight and it was pretty good....I sliced up one LC tortilla, added 1/4 cup of LC sauce..and nuked it for about a minute..Add some cheese and voila..

They also use the tortillas for lasagne noodles..

We can call them "toodles"..

You wouldn't want to boil them or anything drastic..just a few minutes is enough..

I've seen high carb recipes where you add sliced flour tortillas to hot soup to make noodles/dumplings. I think I remember that they were added at the end like you did so that they weren't boiled. After sitting in the hot broth for a few minutes they would get all soft and puffy according to the recipe.

I think the Mission ones (that have white flour) would be the best to use.

I'm thinking of chicken and toodles.. My favorite dish..

Get your chicken/broth all ready and then add the toodles and serve right away. You would have to thicken the broth a bit with thickener because in the high carb version, the flour from the Noodles does thicken it up..
