There are lots of more complicated pasta recipes around, but this one is as simple and as equally satisfying as it gets!

  • Cook your pasta according to the instructions on the bag. Drain and place in a greased medium sized casserole dish.
  • Place the butter in a saucepan and heat it until it’s melted, then stir in the flour.
  • Add in a very, VERY small amount of milk. Just enough to mix it in. Keep adding a small bit of milk at a time, constantly stirring, until you have added it all and the mixture is smooth.
  • Add in 2 cups of the shredded cheese, stirring to melt it in completely.
  • Once the cheese has melted and the sauce has thickened, pour over the noodles in the casserole. Top with the remaining cup of cheddar cheese.
  • Bake covered in the oven for 20-25 minutes, then uncover and let the cheese melt and brown for another 10-15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

How healthy are Cheesy Egg Noodles?

Okay, let’s be real here – they’re egg noodles covered in cheese, so they’re not exactly top of the health food chain, but they’re not unhealthy! Everything in moderation, right? Egg noodles are a great source of B vitamins like riboflavin, niacin, and folate, which help to convert the food you eat into energy and regulate your appetite. Oh, and they help with your eyesight too! Not to mention the abundance of health benefits associated with cheese, such as; calcium to keep your teeth and bones in top shape, blood clotting properties, and regulating your blood pressure.

Can I eat Egg Noodles on a Keto diet?

Egg noodles are pretty high in carbs and the same goes for the delicious cheesy variation; a cup of egg noodles contains about 40 grams of carbs. With that in mind, this cheesy egg noodles recipe is one to avoid if you’re on a low-carb or keto diet. But if carbs aren’t a no-go for you, cheesy egg noodles are a perfectly yummy side dish or snack to have when the hunger pangs hit! And they’re awesome for the kids too!

What can I serve Cheesy Egg Noodles with?

Whatever you like! You can let your imagination run wild on this one. Cheesy egg noodles literally go with anything. Personally, I love to add some vegetables like onions and crispy mushrooms to this recipe to beef it up a bit for a tasty quick fix. Cheesy egg noodles also go wonderfully as a side dish to a creamy chicken casserole – or any casserole really! As I said, the possibilities are endless!
