I ♥ Noodles! Noodles are so incredibly versatile. I always have noodles on hand because they are great for last minute meals or easy side dishes. Sometimes noodles with a pat of butter is all you need to fill you up.
My kids love noodles too. My kids would eat noodles every day if I let them.
There are so many different things you can make with noodles. Here are some of my favorite ways to eat noodles.
- Mix with grilled chicken, steamed veggies and Alfredo sauce.
- Mix with grilled chicken, stir fried veggies and some teriyaki or Yoshida sauce.
- Stir in shaved cheese until it melts. Easy “mac and cheese”.
- Serve as a side dish with pot roast and let the juice from the roast mix in with the noodles.
- Homemade chicken noodle soup
- Beef Stroganoff
My family uses Pennsylvania Dutch noodles. I actually started using them the first time I made chicken noodle soup. Their noodles were the perfect size and consistency for the soup. Not too big, not too small. They were just right.
I love that they have yolk free, whole grain noodles too. My kids don’t notice a difference. For all they know they are the same noodles we’ve always used. I love that I am able to offer my kids a healthier version of one of their favorite foods.
Pennsylvania Dutch Noodles are quick and easy to make too. That is why they often end up as side dishes to our main meals. I love to serve noodles with pot roast and meatloaf. It seems like noodles were made for those main meals.
Noodles are also easy enough for my kids to make on their own too. Of course I’m a paranoid mom so they can only make them when I’m around to supervise. There is no much involved. Just boiling water for the most part. I just want to make sure they don’t accidentally burn themselves when they are straining out the water.
Did you know you can find many yummy noodle recipes on the Pennsylvania Dutch website? Visit www.PennsylvaniaDutchNoodles.com to check out the recipes and to learn more about their products. You can even learn about cooking the perfect noodles and cooking with children. There is also some interesting information on how to store and correctly measure noodles.
Noodles often get a bad reputation. According to the website noodles are actually lower on the Glycemic Index then other foods. I always assumed pasta was a big no-no. I’m glad that it’s not. Of course you have to enjoy them in moderation.
