This was a very unique pasta dish- the seasoning was tasty yet unexpected. It would pair perfectly with a steak or summer BBQ! My only change to the recipe would be to add moisture since the noodles were a bit dry- maybe a light sauce or coating of butter.

These noodles didn't have much taste to them; I tasted the pepper and basil, but it could have used a bit more of something. I'm so used to sauces, so maybe that's what I was expecting more of.

I love buttered noodles as a side dish and this recipe is the perfect one for many meals. Kids will eat it and parents will enjoy the added seasonings.

What drew me to this dish was the smell! The herbs give a bit of kick to what would otherwise be a boring noodle recipe. Plus, it's super easy to make!

What a difference a little seasoning can do for buttered noodles! Usually the butter is enough but the herbs really make these noodles taste even better. Plus, it's a super easy side dish to add to any meal.
