Does anyone have any good noodle-type recipes that don't involve cheese?  My husband and my son won't eat noodles with cheese.  Thanks!!  Smiley

Pesto is great!  It has this taste like no other and you can add lots of things to it.  You can also make a lot of other sauses, variations of marninaras with different herbs and spices.  Is there a specific kind of noodles like rice, soba, or just the basics and also specific shape.  Longer variations work best with pesto and different marinaras generally although if they are chunky, lots of veggies then shorter bulky ones are best.

My family likes noodles tossed with butter and sour cream with parsley.

Ooo, that kind of sounds good! (the butter and sour cream)

I've never had pesto before.  Is there any kind of taste you can compare it to for me?  Thanks for the help!!  Grin

UM, HAVE YOU EVER HAD PINENUTS?  IT HAS ALMOST A PINE TASTE BUT WITH BASIL SALT AND OIL THATS THE GENERAL GIST OF WHAT PEST IS ACTUALLY.

Puttenesca sauce!  It's one of my favourites and is really easy.  It's essentially tomatoes, olives, capers and anchovies.  Yum.  Lots of recipes on the internet.

Me and my roommate in college always ate noodles tossed with butter or margarine and a little salt for flavor.  This way you can sprinkle some shredded or parmesan cheese on top of yours if you like cheese!  My sister always dumps a jar of alfrado sauce on her noodles, which is a nice quick alternative to noodles and cheese too.

When I want a break from spaghetti sauce, I put basil and garlic pepper on mine, usually with some parmesan or shredded cheddar cheese (well, rice cheese because I don't do dairy or soy), but I've left the cheese off sometimes as well.  Experiment with some spice combinations!

I don't particularly care for cheese either, so I can sympathize with your husband and son!

Along with the puttenesca that someone else mentioned (which is also excellent over polenta, btw), one of my favorite noodle dressings is minced garlic sauteed just for a bit in some olive oil and butter. "Hot Naked" is what one restaurant called it. It's delish!

Oh, I JUST remembered one of the dishes I used to live on when I was in college: spaghetti tossed with a can of Ro-tel! It's spicy, but a nice change of pace from Italian style sauces. And it's cheap to boot! I don't remember exactly, but I think I drained the Ro-tel first--it can be pretty watery.

Watch out; this is wierd:

I LOVE LOVE LOVE ketchup on macaroni.  Mmmm!!!

Try it before you bash it!

Also, when I was living at home, my mom used to make plain macaroni so we could put whatever we wanted on it.  We had seasoned salt, cajun spices, american cheese slices, parmesan cheese, italian seasoning, oregano, you name it.  I ALWAYS put ketchup and seasoned salt on mine.  :-)
