Buttery, Herbed Egg Noodles

Since before the sons can even remember they’ve been eating buttered noodles. It was one of their favorite (and most requested) lunches, especially when visiting Nanni’s house. Of course, Nanni will put more butter on your butter. Mean Mommy? Not so fast. Seriously though, buttered noodles were a life saver on more than one occasion for a last minute lunch for one very overwhelmed Mom, especially after we brought son # 4 home from the hospital and I was in the homestretch on summer vacation with two weeks left. We all totally agree, that while buttered noodles are the bees knees, add in some herbs and a dash of garlic, and they’re just plain awesome.

  4 Sons 'R' Us: Herbed Egg Noodles

They’re so simple and incredibly easy to throw together at the last minute. I mean seriously, tender noodles coated in buttery sauce? You can’t go wrong with the addition of dill and thyme. A little garlic gives them the perfect little bit of pizzazz. Besides being a great last minute lunch they also make a great side, complimenting any meaty entree you might throw their way.

  13. When my son was small, I used to often wonder how my mum managed without pasta – we never had any until we came to Canada and I had a Kraft dinner at a friends one night…but even then we never really had it at home. For me it has been a real life saver especially on those busy nights when there have been after school activities and homework and someone dropping by…hot pasta, pesto, creme fraiche, cherry tomatoes, broccoli and some left over chicken and dinner is ready in about 15 minutes!! I love the idea of your buttered noodles though and it sounds very appealing right now!
