Parmesan Herbed Noodles

Looking for a quick, tasty side dish that goes well with all kinds of meats? Try my recipe for tender noodles. For a colorful variation, sometimes I add slightly cooked red and green peppers and a quarter cup of peas. —Denise Elder, Hanover, Ontario Elder

    I cannot say enough about this fabulous dish that I served as a side with Hungarian Goulash. We often have buttered, s & p egg noodles as a side dish, and I always loved it. This recipe takes them to a whole other level. I will be making them like this from now on. Hubby who was not as big of a fan of egg noodles as me, raved over it.

    I really liked the flavors in this recipe. I substituted garlic powder for the clove of garlic since I wanted the garlic to be more subtle. When I make it again, I will use a little less olive oil and add more of the parmesan.

    This is my third time trying this recipe: the first time, the last time, and one time to many.

    I needed a side dish to take to a friend. There are only two of them, and I was unsure if food likes and dislikes. This was perfect. Great flavor, and they asked for the recipe to make again ! Simple, and I had everything on hand.

    I'm not sure if I did something wrong or not (I double and triple checked the ingredients!), but oh my goodness it was soooo oily! The butter AND the oil was just way too much! I wound up adding in some grated parmesan and additional shredded cheese to absorb some of the oil and that helped a bit. Next time I'm going to cut both the oil and butter in half for the same amount of pasta. The herbs and salt seemed to be at a good amount. The shredded cheese I used was swiss. Despite the large amount of grease, we both agreed that it was yummy. With the change in grease, this should become a 5-star recipe.

    Very tasty. Added 1/2 small onion diced, 1/2 small zucchini, diced and 1/4 cup of peas. Saut?ed all with garlic, added spices and 1/4 cup of whipping cream. I added cooked rotini noodles and the Parmesan, and mixed. Hubby and mom in law loved it and they are not pasta enthusiasts. Thank you, it's saved.
