These noodles are wonderful if you need a quick side dish. They use ingredients you may already have in your pantry making them a great last minute dinner addition. The recipe comes from Canadian Living's Make It Tonight.

I loved that I had everything I needed on hand to make these noodles....always a plus!! I was looking for a low fat noodle dish, and with no butter or cream this worked. I halved the amount of olive oil, but left the garlic and red pepper flakes the same. I did use a bit of the starch water. I also added a little kosher salt to these. Thanks for sharing!
