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!
