"Great side dish! Delicious! I may add chicken or tuna in the future and turn it into a main dish."

"This recipe was made on June 18th, 2017 as a side to go with Fried Tilapia. Instead of using the fine egg noodles, two 7 ounce ( 4 cups) bags of Fideo Noodles. Even though there is just two of us the whole recipe was made (I love leftovers). I felt like something was missing. When I reheat this, I'll add some Parmesan cheese to see if that helps. I think that this recipe will be a great starting point for a variety of other great recipes. Thanks for sharing. " Keep smiling :) ""

"This is a great side dish! There are only two of us, so I halved the recipe and (oh the horror!) I used crumbled ramen noodles instead of egg noodles. The ramen toasts and cooks more quickly, so I had to adjust cooking time, but it made for quick and tasty dish that we both enjoyed. I will definitely be making it with egg noodles as written."

"We've had this twice in the last month for lunch. My boys LOVE it. First time I made it, as is. The last time I made it, I added cooked chicken and a sprinkle of parmesan.

The recipe says egg noodles, but I went off the picture and it looks like thin spaghetti to me :)"

"Awesome! Just loved this dish. Made this in my rice cooker - first on saute setting, then rice setting. Stirred through the parmesan cheese at the end. Wonderful! Didn't change anything. I did halve this as there is only 3 of us, which was perfect for a side dish. This will be a regular for us now. Thanks for a lovely, tasty and easy recipe. 10/10."

"I made this today and my family loved it! I also enjoyed that it is made with ingredients I always have on hand. I used 3/4 of a box of thin spaghetti. I also think this would be great with a little fresh grated Parmesan and crispy bacon bits!!

Excellent dish!"

"My husband and I liked this, but thought it was missing something. Maybe the parmesan the other reviewer mentioned? We had this with TOH Tomato Walnut Tilapia. I cut this recipe in half, but as a side dish, I think it made a LOT. It also seemed like it had a LOT of peas. I will cut back on them next time. A solid side dish that I will make again."

"I hate when people comment that haven't tried it but I have a question BEFORE I make it. Don't know if I'm being dense but it calls for uncooked fine egg noodles to be cooked in skillet 2-3 minutes. Are you talking egg noodles in a pkg off the shelf or like Reames frozen noodles. (thawed or unthawed). I haven't ever fixed noodles this way so I am hesitant. Thank you."

"This is delicious and very easy. I used 1% milk instead of half and half. I used only one can of chicken broth (which is a little less than 2 cups) and made up the rest of the liquid with the 1% milk. I also stirred in 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese about 5 minutes before it was done. Delicious! My husband says this recipe is a keeper! In response to pdjones, I used Pennsylvania Dutch brand egg noodles which come dried, in a bag, and can be found in the aisle with the spaghetti and other types of dried noodles."
