Home cooks, say hello to your new favorite weeknight dinner staple! Almost a year after the launch of its frozen veggie tots and riced veggie products (and just in time to kick start our healthy eating new year's resolutions), Green Giant has announced the arrival of its low-calorie, low-carb frozen veggie noodles.
The brand's new spiral noodles, which hit freezer aisles this month, are made from zucchini, carrots, butternut squash, and beets, which all clock in at just 15 to 50 calories per serving.

Each type of noodle is gluten-free and offers around 65 to 90 percent fewer calories than typical pasta, which means you can load up your bowl and stay on track with your weight-loss goals.

Just pop 'em in the microwave to heat them up or throw 'em in a pan to sauté, and these frozen noodles will be ready to be paired with your favorite sauces, meats, veggies, and more. You can find them in the frozen food section of your local grocery start starting later this month.
