Pasta night is always interesting. My kids are picky so the need to come up with something totally different all the time is constant. This dish reminds me of home actually pretty sure somewhere in our family cookbook there’s a version of this recipe. It’s pretty basic and simple, easily dressed up if your in the mood for something else. I think the next time I make this I’ll toss peas in there, it would make a good quick meal.
1 package of medium, egg noodles
1/2 stick of butter
2 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh Parsley
salt and pepper to taste (you can omit the salt if needed)
Cook noodles according to package. Drain and set in a casserole dish or baking pan. While the noodles are cooking you can melt the butter in a sauce pan. Once the butter is melted add in the caraway seeds, then lemon juice parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Stir and then pour over warm noodles.
Simple and basic sometime si like adding more butter and less lemon juice.
Last night I really dressed it up with mushrooms and some gravy Used half a stick of butter again to melt in a pan with some butter, and then added in beef broth to make a good gravy sauce. Seasoned with more pepper and sauteed mushrooms it became a Casserole dish!
I know they look the same but these are the noodles with sauce. Three out of four kids approved , so that’s something 🙂
