Buttery Egg Noodles with Poppy Seeds

Sometimes simple is best. These buttery noodles are a wonderful alternative to mashed potatoes as a side. They go well with just about any pork recipe. The pasta looks pretty along side breaded chicken breasts or baked fish, too. You can even drizzle the noodles with a little gravy or pan drippings to bring out more flavor. Depending upon the “main” star, adding a little crushed garlic is also a nice touch. For added color, sprinkle finished pasta with a little chopped parsley.

1 lb Wide Egg Noodles
2 Tablespoons Butter, melted
1 Teaspoon Poppy Seeds

Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a full boil. Add pasta, stir and cook until just cooked through, about 10 minutes.

Drain and reserve about 1-2 tablespoons pasta cooking water.

Melt butter, pour over noodles and toss to coat. Moisten pasta with pasta water.

Sprinkle with poppy seeds. If desired, add chopped parsley for a splash of color.

Here’s to simple ideas!
