We love this recipe. I'm so glad you posted it because I've been using my rag-tag beat up hand written version that I copied down on scrap paper while at a doctor's office and looking thru Southern Living's magazine. Very family friendly dinner.

I love this recipe because it is very simple and delicious. My husband and 3 kids like this dish as well. Originally, I found this recipe in the Southern Living Magazine. I have made it several times since then. I substitute the whipping cream with half and half. I have also substituted the egg noodles for whole wheat egg noodles and the taste was not compromised.

My family loved it. My daughter said " it is a keeper Mom!!! I used a 16 oz package of noodles and 2 tbsp of italian seasoning and 1/2 milk to make it go farther for a big family.
