    I made this last night with Perfect Prime Rib. These noodles turned out great! I used fettucini noodles and added more butter and oil as many reviews said. Next time I will def add a little parsley to bring out the flavors a little more. I might also try to turn these into a creamy version. I will let you know how it turns out. Thank you so much for a great, extremely quick and easy side dish.

    Really good. It takes longer than 10 minutes though. I used rice spaghetti to be gluten free, a very good unrefined olive oil, butter, garlic salt instead of powder as that is what I had on hand. I also thought parsley would go with this dish.

    Super easy, yet delicious! Next time I will add some red pepper flakes and parsley to see what happens :)

    This was a good side dish (served with Recipe #66857) - I used whole wheat fettucine pasta. I, like some of the other reviewers, had to add additional olive oil & butter to the pasta to evenly coat all 1 pound of it. The best thing about this recipe is the simplicity - every day items that are quick and easy to throw together. Posted photo.

    Really yummy and SUPER easy addition to dinner! The flavor was good and it paired nicely with chicken and asparagus. I did feel we had to add a bit more butter and oil than the recipe stated in order to adequately coat a pound of pasta. No matter...still YUMMY and an easy go-to that I will make again and again! Thanks for sharing this one! EDIT: I need to revise my rating of this recipe. I previously rated this a 4 but made this again tonight paired with chicken lombardy and we all thought we'd died and gone to heaven. This pasta was the PERFECT complement to the chicken dish. TO DIE FOR. This is a definite 5 in a side dish category.

    Fixed this for BF and he inhaled it! Served as a side to shrimp scampi (actually I put the shrimp scampi on top of the pasta) and had steamed broccoli on the side. I used angle hair pasta instead of spaghetti, we just like it better. Also a big plus is that is SO EASY to make! To say it was a hit is an understatement. Thanks Cheesehead, I'll be making this regularly.


I am a Christian wife and mother of 3 kids. Since my DH's high cholesterol, we've been eating better. I never used to like cooking. Since eating better, I've liked learning and preparing new recipes. My kids haven't reconciled themselves to the new eating yet. I grind my own grain and make all my own breads.?Working 2 hours a day in the local high school lunch room.??I am homeschooling my high schooler.? ?Also found out 1 child has multiple food allergies (wheat, dairy, tomato, chocolate, etc) and another is gluten sensitive. So, we just started (July 09) eating gluten and dairy free. I've been busy with getting our house market ready, even though it's not the best time for that.?
