I used to love the boxed side dish "Noodle Roni Parmesano." I hadn't seen it in store shelves for quite some time, so I played around until I came up with something close to it. As it is just me and my DS at home these days, I intentionally developed the recipe as a side dish for two (or a main course for one!) Although I haven't tried it, I would imagine the recipe would double easily enough.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook noodles al dente and drain.
  2. In the empty noodle pan, melt butter and stir in the parmesan until melted and well-blended.
  3. Add garlic powder, salt, pepper, and parsley; stir to blend.
  4. Stir in the cream; continue stirring until blended and smooth.
  5. Return noodles to pan and stir/toss to coat noodles with parmesan mixture.
  6. YUM!

So simple and so good. I did need to lighten it a bit and used fat free liquid coffee creamer for the cream with all else being the same. DH and I both really loved it and he said that it was easy enough for him to make! wow.

Wow wow wow - so so good! A definite splurge dish but worth every calorie! I used vermicelli as I had it on hand. I did not add any salt except for a dash in the pasta cooking water. Added another grinding of fresh pepper and more dried parsley on top when serving. Thanks for sharing!
