Who has time to plan these days? Time seems to be going so fast and some things can get easily overlooked. Well, don’t worry about dinner anymore because these buttered egg noodles are exactly the fulfilling side dish you need.
Make this 2-Step Side Dish of Buttered Egg Noodles for a Filling Dinner
First, focus on the noodles and the butter
While the recipe specifically calls for egg noodles, some people just don’t have them at home, and a trip to the grocery store seems unlikely.
Instead, use those old packages of spaghetti or penne pasta. Whatever you choose, if you cook it al dente, the flavor will still be the same.
Now, as for the butter, we recommend you stick to it, but if you only have margarine, use it in its place, but adjust for salt.
If none of these two options are available, go for olive oil, and while the direction of the dish will now be different; it will still taste delicious and look professional.
Next, you’re ready for the cheese and spices!
Since you have the two main ingredients covered, now focus on the Parmesan cheese and minced parsley.
In this case, the cheese can be changed to Mozzarella, cheddar, or any mix you have handy, like Italian or Mexican.
And if you do not have cheese, consider adding cream or milk instead, for a creamier texture.
Finally, parsley is not easy to come by sometimes, so feel free to change it for dried basil, oregano, thyme, or rosemary. Always add salt and pepper too for a final touch!
Lastly, follow the two simple steps, and there it is! You now have a very flavorsome side dish of buttered egg noodles to enjoy. Gather your friends and family members around for a more memorable experience.
