Oodles of Noodles - Herbed Variation

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Dreamer in Ontario

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. Suggestions for herbs: basil, oregano, parsley PS: After two reviews suggested it, I have changed the ingredient list to say butter or olive oil rather than olive oil. Thankyous to the reviewers for suggesting the improvements.

A friend of mine used to make a dish very similar to this whenever she was low on funds. I definitely agree that the butter is better than oil. I liked fresh basil with this, but the nice part about it is that you can change up the herbs depending on what else you're serving. Thanks for posting!
