Each eight-ounce packet of the noodles, which can be served hot or cold, contains 10 grams of protein and 70 calories. The noodles are very low in cholesterol. Serving suggestions range from adding marinara sauce and meatballs, tossing themd with pesto sauce and roasted vegetables, or mixing them with chicken and coconut curry sauce to simply adding them to a favorite salad.
