Creamy Italian Noodles

While on the Staycation at my Sister-in-Law's house, I saw a cookbook that I hadn't read before.

I flipped through and saw several easy-to-prepare foods that sounded tempting.

She let me borrow her book with the promise that I'd mark any recipe that we tried!

That's a deal!

This recipe is so easy that the Mr. and the cherubs whipped it up while I was running an errand!

The noodles go great with grilled chicken and a side of steamed broccoli.

Creamy Italian Noodles

1 8oz package wide egg noodles
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup  heavy whipping cream, half and half OR evaporated milk (I used fat-free 1/2 and 1/2)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 1/4 tsp. dry Italian salad dressing mix*

Cook noodles according to package directions; drain and place in a bowl.  Toss with the butter.  Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Serve while hot.

*Measure out the dry dressing mix -- to your delight, there's more than 2 1/4 tsp. in a package!  I'm surprised I didn't just dump the entire package in the bowl -- that could have been a mess!
