Do you have a favorite childhood snack? Is there food you’d eat even if you were going through a food shortage or famine? One that would be given to you as long as you were safe from starvation, ignoring nutrition? It was a simple bowl of white rice for me. There is nothing but excellent, unseasoned white rice with no soy sauce or other seasonings. It was buttered noodles for my high school best mate. When we had playdates, her mom would always cook us a meal because it was the only thing she would eat. I was hooked after my first bowl. Cooked with love, what could go wrong?
Noodles seasoned with a hint of maturity.
An updated version of buttered noodles with nutty toasted brown butter, garlic, and a generous amount of Parmigiano-Reggiano Parmigiano. They’re delicious and quite simple to make. According to Mike, the best bowl of noodles I’ve ever made, and you better believe it’s going to be a staple in our weekly rotation now that the fall weather has settled in. Cozying up on the couch with a warm bowl of buttered noodles is the ultimate comfort food, in my opinion.

Do you know how to make butter noodles better?
Butter should be browned before use. There is so much flavor in browning butter that you won’t believe it! Brown butter has a deeper, richer flavor and tastes even more buttery than regular butter.
Parmigiano Reggiano is a well-known Italian cheese. Get Parmigiano Reggiano from Italy instead of the green can stuff. Although it may cost a little extra, the difference in flavor is astounding. For the finest butter noodles, it is essential.
Toppings. Toppings, such as chili flakes and coarsely ground black pepper can provide a welcome kick of heat. Freshly cut Italian parsley not only looks good but also gives the dish a burst of flavor.
