Cheesy Garlic Butter Noodles ~ Quick and Easy Side Dish for a Busy Night! Pasta Loaded with Garlic, Butter & Cheese!
This little side dish was born out of lack of planning, necessity and a craving. You know those little packages of noodles by Lipton? I’m not going to lie there is always one of them in my pantry. I rarely use them, but sometimes I need a quick and easy side dish in a hurry that requires little brain power if any brain power at all. One night I needed this little jem that I always have in my pantry, so I went to grab it and I was craving it. I dug, and dug, and dug and it wasn’t there. I was about to cry. Really it wasn’t a huge deal and we would survive without it, but once I get something into my head I want it. Now. This was one of those times. Then I got to thinking how that little bag of noodles really wouldn’t be that hard to make would it? I’m going to go with No and then I thought making it would probably be a lot better with a whole lot less preservatives and weird stuff. I mean what is that powder in there?
After a quick Google search I find a recipe on Taste of Home and went from there of course altering it a little to what I had on hand. Pretty sure this was way better and I never need to go back to those little packets of noodles! Isn’t it fun when you do something like this in a panic and it really works out way better in the end anyways. I’m thinking my niece would love these. She’d be happy with a bowl full of buttered noodles every night and a piece of garlic bread. The more carbs the better! Don’t ask me how she’s a size 2. I might be a little jealous of this since I’m pretty sure I skipped that size all together!
If you are looking for a quick and easy side dish for a busy night this is your ticket! Noodles loaded with garlic and a light butter sauce and cheese! What’s there not to love about this?
