Noodles with Snow Peas and Red Pepper Strips

Do you like egg noodles?  I always enjoy them with just a little butter, salt and pepper and Parmesan cheese.  Then, I cooked this version and it bowled me over. 

Egg noodles are not the stars of the pasta world.  They don’t have the flair of rigatoni, the temptation of spaghetti nor the figure of farfalle. They are just a plain, sturdy noodle to be doctored up in a casserole or jazzed up in a side dish like this, to become a trusty addition for completing a meal.

Isn’t it a colorful side dish also?  The snow peas with the red pepper make it a delicious, spicy side dish to about any meat.  This is a great dish that I think you would enjoy!

Noodles with Snow Peas and Red Pepper Strips


8 ounces uncooked wide egg noodles
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 cup red bell pepper strips
1 cup julienne-cut snow peas
3 garlic cloves, minced
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper


Cook noodles according to package directions.  Drain well.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet.
Add bell pepper strips and remaining ingredients.
Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add noodles to skillet and toss; heat thoroughly.
4 servings


There’s still time to enter the $65 CSN giveaway I posted on Sept. 15th!  It closes tonight at midnight, central time.  The drawing is tomorrow, Sept. 28th.  Good luck!

Don't know why I don't eat egg noodles more often. I with you, butter and parmesan are all they require, but anything goes with them.

Linda said...

I love egg noodles with my Beef Stroganoff. I remember eating egg noodle a lot more when I was a kid. You just don't see a lot of recipes calling for egg noodles anymore. Your delicious recipe may change all that!

TKW said...

Love that you combined the comfort of noodles with healthy veggies! Win-win!
