Recipe Substitutions

This recipe is totally adaptable. Here are some suggestions.

  • Instead of egg noodles, use penne pasta or macaroni.
  • Leave the peas out if you don’t like them. You can add some finely chopped broccoli or sliced sugar snap peas if you want to add something green.
  • For more cheese flavor, add some shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Finely diced red bell pepper is another great addition.

How To Make Spicy

If you want this recipe to be spicy, add 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes.
