Creamy Italian Noodles

Baby Cakes has been chomping at the bit to grill this season. In the past I have been the chief executive grill master but at the very end of summer last year my husband grilled an amazing steak and I am thinking that the praise he received has created a grilling monster. I can certainly handle that, I get off pretty easy if you ask me. All I have to do is come up with a side dish and we are golden.

This post is one of those side dishes…

Creamy Italian Noodles
recipe from Becoming Betty

16 ounces farfalle pasta
1/2 cup butter
½ cup heavy whipping cream
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 packet italian dressing mix

Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and return to pot.

Add the butter to the hot drained pasta and stir until melted. Stir in the cream and parmesan and mix until combined; stir in the seasoning mix and also stir to combine.

Serve warm or cold.

I have to say that this was a wonderfully delicious recipe. Seriously! I cannot think of a single thing to do to make it any better.

It went perfectly with some ribs and a salad but I could see it served at any BBQ or even a tea party, baby shower or bridal shower. Everyone will rave over this pasta I promise you.


  1. Megan,
    You mention melting the butter on the noodles, how much butter? I don't see it in the recipe ingredients. Thanks!

  2. It's 1/2 cup and thank you for letting me know that I didn't add that to the ingredient list. Hope you enjoy it!
