Weeknight Dinner: Parmesan Noodles, Plus How to Earn Free Cookware!
I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for Save Mart Supermarkets. I received Thomas Cookware items to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
No matter how much I try to plan ahead, weeknight dinners seem to always be rushed in our house. So I love having a healthy, yummy dish like these Weeknight Parmesan Noodles I can pull together quickly for my kids – with minimum cleanup! Best of all, it’s something both my boys love to eat! Seriously, if it were up to Monkey, we would have this every night!
Recently I made Parmesan Noodles (see recipe below) with my new Thomas Cookware from Save Mart. I loved that it was so easy to make in a single pot – I didn’t even need a colander! The lid is cleverly built so that it’s also a strainer, saving me a cooking step plus one less dish to clean – priceless! And when time came to wash the pot, I got an extra surprise with how easy it was to clean.
Thanks to Save Mart, now through January 20, you can earn this high quality cookware simply by doing your regular grocery shopping. Every $10 you spend earns you a bonus stamp, which you can use towards your choice of pots and pans from Thomas Cookware, exclusively at Save Mart Supermarkets!
I love participating in rewards programs, and this is a great one. Why not put your dollars to work earning you some great new additions to your kitchen? Cook like a pro with this top quality cookware!
I am always impressed with how friendly and helpful the staff are at our local store, and how open and airy it is. Save Mart carries all the name brands we find at other stores, often at lower prices. Plus we ran into some fire fighters in our recent trip, which I consider a high stamp of approval!
And now on to the recipe! Enjoy this quick but tasty weeknight version of the kid classic macaroni and cheese!
Weeknight Parmesan Noodles
Makes two generous kid-sized servings or three adult side servings
1/2 lb pasta
Butter or margarine, approx. 1/2 T
Grated Parmesan cheese, approx. 1/4 c
Cook pasta according to package directions. Strain noodles then stir in remaining ingredients and serve.
That’s it! Hope you enjoy as much as my Monkeys and I do!
looks like a nice pot! We have an easy vegan version of this dish just using nutritional yeast in place of the parmesan. Not exactly the same, but just as delicious! I add broccoli when I have it for a more complete dish!
Oh what a great idea! I’ve heard of people sprinkling it on popcorn, but I hadn’t thought of using it with pasta!
This looks like a quick and easy meal! My guys would love it!
Thanks! We make it a couple times a week.
I love such pots! There is no Thomas cookware here but I have a pot like that from a local company -absolutely awesome! And if you want to slow down water evaporation – turn the lid so that the holes are not on the openings. Else keep them there to speed up evaporation.
Great tip! I love this kind of lid. It does make it easy for cooking in so many ways.
