A wonderful side dish to ramp up plain buttered egg noodles. We love it with Salisbury steak, chicken, or pork.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain and return noodles to pot.

  • While the noodles boil, melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic in melted butter until lightly browned and soft, about 8 minutes. Stir baby spinach into the onion mixture; saute until the spinach is just barely wilted, about 2 minutes.

  • Stir spinach mixture into the noodles; season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Note:

If you love baby spinach, use more than 4 ounces, as it wilts quite a bit. I have used uncooked spinach under the noodle mixture to have a combination of sauteed and fresh spinach.

Another great meatless meal we love pasta and egg noodles. This was so easy and quick to make. I would love to be able to make some and freeze it but not sure how noodles would do in the freezer. Read More
