In Warren, Minnesota, Dawn Fagerstrom gets a head start on a side dish with this pleasant seasoning mixture that works with most any type of noodles you have in your pantry. Add water and pop the dish in the oven alongside your entree.
THIS RECIPE is as simple as it is delicious. I tried it the first year I had an herb garden, when I was looking for recipes that called for fresh herbs.
The noodles are compatible with many main dishes, even hot dogs and hamburgers.
