Garlic Parmesan Noodles
We are big fans of Lipton Noodle side dishes. They are simple and work great with chicken, pork, or any other meat we are making for dinner. I use to keep the store bought packages on hand in the pantry for a quick dinner side dish.
For the past year or so, I have been making our own homemade noodles. I keep many different varieties of pasta on hand so I can whip up our own homemade versions right at home.
For these Easy Garlic Parmesan Noodles, you can use spaghetti or fettuccine noodles. Just about any pasta will work.
My entire family loves garlic and parmesan together so this side is always a favorite. I make an entire box of noodles for our large family. If there are leftovers, I toss them in the fridge to use for a snack or with lunch. If you have a small family and only needing a small amount, you could half my recipe very easily.
I think our Homemade Garlic Noodles are better than store bought. They have tons of garlic flavor and the parmesan tastes so much better than the prepackaged stuff.
If you plan to make these Garlic Parmesan Noodles you will need pasta, butter, garlic, crushed red pepper, and parsley flakes. You can have your side dish ready in about 15-20 minutes time. So super simple.
