One Pot Easy Garlic Parmesan Noodles

I am always on the search for easy and fast meal ideas and awhile back I came across a pin on Pinterest about a One Pot Wonder Tomato Basil Recipe. As I was trying it out, I fell in love with the idea just needing one pot to either have an easy lunch or dinner.
After some experimenting, I created some yummy yummy in my tummy easy One Pot recipes. Today I want to share my family's favorite with all of you.

Garlic Parmesan Noodles  
all in one pot and it only takes you 20 minutes to prep and cook!

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 20 min

What you will need:
1 – 2 tbsp garlic, finely chopped
2 cups water
1-2 vegetable bouillon cubes or 1 – 2 tsp of bouillon powder
1 cup milk (cream or half and half works, too)
½ tsp salt
¼ – ½ tsp black pepper
2 – 3 tbsp parsley, fresh, chopped
2 tbsp butter
8 oz noodles (any kind works, we prefer faralle or spaghetti)
½ cup Parmesan cheese

What you will also need:

  • medium pot
  • measuring cup
  • measuring spoons
  • cutting board
  • knife
  • tongs
At first you start by chopping your garlic and then cooking it in the hot olive oil. Don't brown or burn it, just let it get aromatic and a little golden on the edges.

Add the two cups of water and your vegetable bouillon cube or bouillon powder, then add milk, salt, pepper, parsley, butter and noodles.

Turn the heat down, add the lid and let cook for 10-15min or until noodles are tender.

You can either mix the Parmesan under the noodles or you can sprinkle each portion individually. Top with fresh parsley and enjoy :)

It is a super simple recipe, and a plus: It's vegetarian and my husband loves it!

How does your family like this recipe?
