"This is too simple, but so good that I had to post. Very quick and makes a great side dish to anything; we especially like this served aside ham or fish."

    With some fresh ground pepper, a little salt, and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese this has been devoured at my house many times!

    I made this tonight with #114839 Easy Chicken and mushrooms as one of the reviewers had suggested. It was delicious. I don't know why I didn't think of it before. We love browned butter on brussel sprouts, so why not noodles? Very very good and simple too!


Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
