Shirataki pasta is made with something called konnyaku flour, which isn't flour at all, and comes from a weird kind of Japanese potato.  It has no soy, gluten, cholesterol or calories.  It's definitely an acquired taste, as the texture is different from normal pasta, but it's easy to get used to.

My husband, a real meat-n-potatoes guy, ate shirataki noodles all through his diet (he lost a ton of weight) instead of regular pasta, and they really grew on him.  They basically absorb the flavor of whatever soup or sauce they are in.

In a holiday laden with all kinds of stomach-curdling starch (hello 3,000 matzoh balls), these noodles have been a welcome addition in the past.  They are also compatible with gluten-free diets, so if you're having GF guest, these will work in their soup.  And if you're watching your weight (who isn't?), these are awesome, as they have less than 5 calories per bag.  You could probably burn that off by chewing.

This is absolutely crucial:  make sure you rinse these noodles with cold water in a colander before eating them.  It gets rid of a sort of yucky shirataki pre-taste.  I don't recommend baking with shirataki noodles because of the different texture, but I'll admit that I've never tried it, so if you are culinarily adventurous, here's a recipe for Sweet Shirataki Noodle Pudding with Apples and Almonds for Pesach.

If you have never had these before and are ordering these for Pesach, make sure that 1) when they arrive, they have an OU-P on them, as they advertise. If not, they are NOT kosher for Passover and 2) you adjust your expectations for taste/texture.  Eating these will be a very different experience from eating regular wheat noodles.  I had some DailyCheapskate readers who ordered these last year and were delighted and claimed they would eat them year-round, but there was also one who couldn't take more than one bite and gave away the rest. So if you are adventurous, make sure you adjust your expectations accordingly.
