Easy, quick - added Parmesan and cooked chicken pieces. Might try ham next time.

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 :) "

Delicious! I added finely shredded white cheddar cheese and cubed ham and actually used this as my main dish. So good!!!

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.
