Garlic Noodles

It's been a while since I posted a recipe, so here ya' go.

I have been making alot of vegetable sushi rolls lately and was looking for a side dish that was different. I wanted some sort of noodle dish, but not the usual peanut noddles, something new. So, modifying a couple of recipes found online, I made up these Garlic Noodles. They are soo good, try them soon! Serve with grilled chicken or steak, and I'm sure they would be good cold too. Easily can be doubled. Don't count on leftovers, it's hard to not go back for seconds.

Garlic Noodles


½ Pound of Whole Wheat Pasta
Half a stick of butter
3 T. garlic, minced
½ C. green onion, chopped
2 T. brown sugar
2 T. tablespoons of soy sauce
large handful of cilantro, chopped

Prep Work:

First, boil the noodles and set aside. Toss with a bit of olive oil to prevent clumping.

Chop garlic and onion, set aside.

Chop cilantro, set aside.

Add butter to a skillet and melt over medium heat.

Add garlic and green onion, sauté lightly, do not brown the garlic, it will be bitter.

Add the soy sauce and brown sugar and stir to combine. Add half and half. Sauté until simmering.

Add the noodles and toss noodles in sauce really well. Serve out into individual bowls. Add the chopped fresh cilantro as garnish, optional.
