Mar 18, 2015

Whether it's spaghetti and meatballs or macaroni and cheese, noodles of all shapes and sizes have a firm grasp on most American dinner menus. To celebrate National Noodle Month, we’ve gathered 10 of our favorite noodle recipes from the Andrews McMeel cookbook collection.

1. Cajun Mac and Cheese

Spicy Andouille sausage gives this pasta dish an extra kick. It is the perfect accompaniment to sweet onions and bell peppers and a creamy, cheesy sauce.

2. Shanghai Fried Noodles

You’ll never need to order Chinese takeout again with this recipe in your back pocket. Swap in other vegetables as desired — broccoli, mushrooms, or peppers would work perfectly.

3. Parmesan Chicken Fettuccine

A healthy serving of broccoli, onion, and mushrooms come together with a creamy sauce, succulent chicken breast, and crispy bacon in this rich and comforting pasta dish.

4. Pici with Popped Tomatoes, Anchovies, and Onions

PiciBook: A Mouthful of Stars

This simple sauce — fresh tomato, garlic, dried chile flake, and olive oil — lets the noodles shine. The recipe calls for pici, but penne or spaghetti would work just as well. 

5. Bucatini All'Amatriciana

You can’t go wrong when bacon is part of the equation. Chili flakes add the perfect level of spice.

6. Spinach Fettuccine with Peas, Butter and Parmesan

It doesn’t get more green than this simple dish. Spinach fettuccine and green peas combine in a simple sauce made from chicken broth, butter, and Parmesan cheese.

7. Deconstructed Carbonara

Decontructed CarbonaraBook: Canal House Cooks Every Day

Opting for pasta sheets (homemade or store-bought) make any plate of pasta just a bit more chic. Here, they’re paired with diced pancetta, a poached egg, and freshly-grated pecorino cheese for a simple, classic dish. 

8. Pasta alle Briciole

Pasta alle BricioleBook: Cucina Povera

Sometimes called “Poor Man’s Parmigiano,” this simple dish is a great way to use up the stale ends of leftover bread. Toss homemade breadcrumbs with garlic, red pepper flake, and olive oil for a crunchy and flavorful pasta topping.

9. Thai Beef Salad

Thai Beef SaladBook: The Grilling Book

Soba noodles (which are made from buckwheat) are ideal for cold salads. Asian-marinated beef, a flavor-packed dressing, and a healthy dose of veggies and herbs combine to make this hearty, travel-friendly dish that's perfect for lunch or dinner.

10. Old Fashioned Macaroni & Cheese

Mac and CheeseBook: Sunday Dinners

The addition of chives elevates the flavor of this classic macaroni and cheese, while evaporated milk and cheddar cheese create the perfect creamy, gooey texture.
