"A nice change from plain buttered noodles. I melted my butter and did not have any issues with the other ingredients adhering to the noodles. I used half-and-half since that is what I had on hand. Definitely will make again!"

"Just made this for the first time, using the original recipe in the magazine so the butter was softened, not melted. I made a half recipe since hubby (AKA Mr. Pickey) doesn't like Parm cheese. Will cut up a little leftover chicken to add to the leftovers for a lunch and will definitely make again!"

"One of the fastest & easiest & most delicious recipes I've ever made! The recipe as printed here is slightly changed from the original. In that version, the softened butter, not melted, is added to the cooked noodles right after cooking & draining. I used half & half. I'd think that the original version would allow the other ingredients to adhere better to the noodles. I also added 2 cooked chicken breasts, chopped, to make it a main dish. My family loved it!"

"These noodles were a big hit in my house. They were super easy to prepare and delicious. My mother in law even liked them and she hates parmesan cheese."

"Is a wonderful side dish that I'm sure I'll make often. I used evaporated milk and it turned out great & reduced the calories!"

"This was the first time I made a noodle dish as a side and it turned out well. My family enjoyed it. I made it to accompany the Bacon Mushroom chicken, and was similarly surprised by the mildness of this dish. I had a 10 oz. package of noodles, so I one-and-a-halved the ingredients for the sauce. As with the chicken dish, perhaps next time a little garlic!"
