6oz of egg noodles (I used No Yolks)
2 TBS flavored butter*
Sea salt + pepper
Bunch of asparagus
Seasoning (I liked Penzey’s Trinidad and Garlic Marinade)
Grated parmesan or pecorino romano (A few TBS)
Buttered noodles is a pretty kid friendly dish, but feel free to sub in your children’s favorite vegetable. If they like peas, for example, they would work great here too.
*Note on butter: I stared longingly at the Black Truffle Butter, but I could not justify paying $12.99 for butter! So, instead I went with the Basil Garlic Butter. It was in the soft cheese section at the grocery store. If your store doesn’t have flavored butter, simply soften some butter and stir in your favorite herbs and spices. Also, don’t be afraid of the butter! Since 2TBS is 11 grams of fat and this is for four people, the butter fat is spread around enough to keep this in the skinny category!
