Such a simple and delicious recipe, yet I get many questions on how to make it.

This was awesome. I changed around the ingredients. I added olive oil in he can to prevent the noodles from sticking after I drained them and sauted some Jake and mixed it in the noodles. Read More

This was a good recipe. I've been meaning to try this for some time. I had roasted some cherry tomatoes and simmered them with the butter and garlic while the fettuccine was cooking. When the fettuccine was cooked I poured it into the butter garlic sauce, added the parmesan, and one bag of spinach. Thanks for the recipe - I'll be using it often. Read More

These noodles are just down-home awesome. My mom would make this growing up, I would make this a lot in college, and I still make it every now and then when I'm looking for something simple to make. These noodles are so versatile. You could easily tweak this with ingredients you like. I sometimes add crushed red pepper, other times I add dried minced garlic, or fresh minced herbs. The sky's the limit really! This last time I did half butter, half truffle oil - delicious!!! This recipe makes 8 very small side servings, so plan accordingly. Read More

Tasty side dish. I used medium egg noddles which were great. They aren't a strong flavored dish so could pair well with most main dishes. I could see me liking some garlic in it too. Read More

NO changes. When I review a recipe I stick to the same ingredients. I do believe quite a few people realize that simplicity in your meal is the best. AND I do believe a lot of food lovers forget how GREAT just a plain butter & noodle dish really satisfies. All the tomato sauces, & this & that are great , however the basics are still the best. Different noodles make a different taste texture, soo experiment with the noodles NOT this sauce. Thank you as always and I make this ALL the time. Always a crowd pleaser. Cheers from N.V. Read More

7.22.17 Nothing not to like here and it was a nice option to mashed potatoes. I often think rice or potatoes as a side dish but forget how good noodles can be. And I can see so many variations on this recipe to keep it interesting. Read More
