Total time: 15 minutes | Serves 6 to 8
  • 3/4 pound egg noodles
  • Salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh white bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup finely minced parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Step 1Cook noodles in salted water according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Drain. Add just a little reserved liquid to moisten but not enough to really wet them. (Can be made ahead and reheated in microwave oven, adding more liquid if noodles are dry.)

Step 2Heat butter in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. When melted, add bread crumbs and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in parsley, scant 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. (Can be made a day ahead, refrigerated and gently reheated stovetop when ready to serve.) To serve, toss hot noodles with warm crumb mixture. Serve immediately.
