I went to a bulk food store and bought med. egg noodles...Not realizing that when I went to Aldi's for my everyday groceries that I had gotten some there, too.
So, now I have Way Too Many egg noodles. What can I make with them besides tuna noodle casserole and beef stroganoff?
Made the beef Stroganoff last night...it is so quick and easy.
Brown ground beef in pan, add 1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup...That is how My mom served it. I "spice it up" with a healthy squeeze of ketchup (I would guess about 1/4 of a cup maybe) and some worchestershire sauce (a couple of Tbsp maybe) until it tastes good. If it gets too thick add some sour cream or milk to make it more "saucey"
Noodle knugle (sp?), chicken 'n noodles, chicken noodle soup....since they'll keep for a long time, you don't have to hurry. If you're worried about little 'pasta bugs' or whatever gets into them, I'd take them out of the bag & store them in a glass jar....just tape the cooking instructions to the outside of the jar, or tuck it inside...some seem to cook in 7 to 8 minutes, others take 12 min. As a side dish, I like to cook the noodles, drain & add a lump of butter, grated Parmesan cheese, sprinkle a little garlic powder, dried dill, dried parsley, chives (unless you have fresh herbs), oregano...whatever you like, seasoned to taste & serve with your main course.

Butter 1 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp. pepper 1 tsp. garlic powder 1 (8 oz.) can of tomato sauce 1 cup creamed cottage cheese 1 cup Dairy sour cream 6 green onions, chopped 3/4 cup shredded cheddar or Mozzarella cheese. Preheat oven to 350° F.Cook noodles, rinse and drain. Brown meat in butter. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder, mushrooms then tomato sauce. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Combine cottage cheese, sour cream, onions and cooked noodles. In a 2 layer casserole, alternate layers of noodle mixture with meat mixture, beginning with noodles and ending with meat. Top with shredded cheese. Bake at 350 for about 25 min. (I used a little more than 8 oz of tomato sauce, because the can I opened was 15 oz. It was good)Also last nite, I had run out of egg noodles, so had some small ziti style past, and used it - that worked out good too.If I have enough sauce I put it in the bottom of the casserole too.Good quick comfort meal.Heidi.

The gravy from the pork chops is great served over egg noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.
pork chops (mine were thick & boneless)1 can cream of chicken soup1 package dry pork gravy mix1 soup can water1/2 onion choppedDredge pork chops in flour. Fry in hot skillet with 1 Tbsp. oil for 3-4 minutes per side until brown. I sprinkled salt, pepper, on each side of the pork chops as they fried. Remove browned chops to a plate. In same skillet brown the onions, scraping up any stuck on bits from the pork chops. Stir in the soup, dry gravy mix, and can of water. Stir until all is well mixed and boiling. Place the pork chops back in the pan in the gravy. Cover with a lid and reduce heat to low. **Let these simmer until tender, at least 20 minutes. They can simmer longer depending on thickness of the pork chops. I let mine simmer for 30 minutes, the time it took me to peel, cook, and mash the potatoes. This is so easy and so delicious. You've just gotta try it. DH also loves this with egg noodles or rice instead of potatoes.
** The pork chops and gravy can be placed in a baking dish and put in the oven to bake covered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees instead of finishing on the stove.

One head of cabbage chopped up
one stick of butter
one onion cut up
melt butter - add onions and cabbage. when browned up nicely add cooked egg noodles. Great comfort food.
p,s, I always try to cut back on the butter - when using 1/2 stick I end up putting more in because it is so dry. One time I put in a dash of olive oil instead of all butter.
