Asiago & Pesto Fettuccine with Shirataki Noodles

I was cooking up some of my Spicey Pesto Chicken Casserole today and decided to try out the Shirataki Noodles that I picked up at Market of Choice the other day with a little of the Pesto Sauce that I use to make the Casserole. Here’s the recipe I used and a picture of how it looked before I fed it to my little Diva of a tummy!
