My husband asks for this! Try adding a bit of minced garlic to the butter putting a bit of Greek Seasoning in with the mixture and topping with whatever kind of cheese is on hand before baking. It is the perfect "stand-by" budget-wise main dish. Kudos to Ya-Ya and thanks for shaking it with us Nicole! Read More

If you use way more oragano, garlic powder, salt, creole seasoning, and powdered parmesan cheese, it's THE BEST!!!!!!! Read More

My family went WILD for this! I am not a very good cook and the first time I made this I messed up the recipe a bunch of times and it still tasted DELICIOUS. The second time I followed the directions perfectly acurately and it was EVEN BETTER! If you don't taste this dish there is something wrong with you. Read More

This is fantastic...I have made Sicilian spaghetti and didn't care much for it so I sort of had that mindset with this recipe but I changed my tune after one taste...AWESOME! Thanks! Read More

This is a good recipe when your cupboards are bare and you need to go grocery shopping. I'll be honest - I don't get step 3 where you "brown" the butter. I did it but I felt silly as my microwave looked at me like I was crazy and wondered why I wasn't using him instead...BUT it worked. (or at least...the dish didn't taste bad). A twist to butter noodles BUT needs some veggies or something for color. Overall - a decent low-budget lunch. I wouldn't recommend but I can't say it tasted bad either. Read More

This was pretty good. I added garlic as was suggested in another post and also added shrimp. I topped it with goat cheese. Yum! Hubby liked it and asked for seconds a true sign of his sincerity. Read More

I thought this recipe sounded a lot better than it actually tastes. The noodles were all stuck together and the cheese would not melt. My husband and kids were not impressed. I thought it was okay although I would not make again. Thanks anyway! Read More
