Cream Cheese Noodles make a super delicious side


I’ve used penne pasta but you could use egg noodles or any shape of pasta.

A full block of cream cheese makes Cream Cheese Noodles super creamy.

Start by sauteing some garlic in a  few tablespoons of butter. Then add the cream cheese (soften it first) and milk and stir until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and stir in a pound of cooked pasta.

  1. You are the only person I actually follow on Pinterest. I have never made a recipe of yours that wasn’t just wonderful! When I see your name I know it’s going to be a winner!

  2. Hi, what is meant by “1 pound cooked pasta” Does it weigh 1 pound when it’s dry or only after it’s been cooked? Thank you.

  3. This was delicious! And super easy to throw together. I threw in some leftover salmon at the end and served with side of roasted cauliflower. The husband and 4 year old said to make it again. Thanks for this recipe 😊😊

    Added some chopped sun-dried tomatoes, grilled chicken chunks, and broccoli florets. Delicious. I used half and half instead of milk, was decadent, LOL

    Wow! Was it Thumper who said, “If you can’t say nothin’ nice, don’t say nothin’ at all.” And it may not be the recipe, but perhaps the person making it? (maybe that’s not nice)

    Its a great base recipe. Tweek it to your liking. I use the herb and garlic cream cheese, add a little fresh parmasen and crumbled bacon. Bacon and peas would be good.

    Super easy and filling. For some reason I was out of flour.. so I googled my four ingredients for an Alfredo-ish pastarecipe and voila!
    Or as SOUTH Texans say.. Heck Yeah!
    Done and Dine! ✅ Now for The dishes.. EZ!

  7. This recipe was amazing! Added some cajun seasoning, chili powder, and turkey bacon. Will definitely make again!!

    I doctored the recipe to suit my taste. This is a good basic recipe. May not be southern..but what diff. does it make. Don’t bash the author. She is giving you something for nothing. Obviously you were looking for something different. Do you buy a cookbook and then write the author because you didn’t like a recipe? CHRISTIN…keep doing what we all do…invent in the art of cooking.
