Creamy Skillet Noodles with Peas

I’ve made this creamy noodle side for years. Since kids and adults go for it, I keep the ingredients on hand at all times. —Anita Groff, Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania

    This is a quick and easy dinner. To make a hardier meal consider adding chicken.

    Very easy and quick meal. I added some chicken thighs, Parmesan, and some mozzarella and it helped to make it extra creamy. Highly recommend!!!

    I have had an amazing streak of making good meals for my family during quarantine, but things changed when I made this recipe. I was so excited to make it because it looked creamy and delicious, but even after following the recipe to a T, the result hardly resembled your photo. It was dry and the noodles had hardened, even though I lowered the heat because I thought it was too hot. I added more broth and a little more cream, which made it edible, but not enjoyable. Eventually, I gave up and added 4 cheese pasta sauce, which made it much better.

    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 :) "
