I don’t know about you, but my kids would literally eat noodles for every meal. They love them with butter, with sauce, with cheese (of course), and pretty much any way they can get them. So it’s a no brainer for me to incorporate them into as many meals as I can!
I recently made this Chicken Noodle Casserole for dinner, and my kids LOVED it. They even went back for seconds! I mean…what’s not to love about creamy, cheesy chicken and noodles??
Especially when they’re Reames Frozen Egg Noodles. If you’ve already tried them, you know exactly what I mean. And if you haven’t? You MUST. They’re a total game changer! They’re thick and hearty and taste so much better than the dried kind. And they’re made with just 3 ingredients and no preservatives. They’re the perfect noodles to incorporate into all your cold weather egg noodle recipes.
Reames are known as “the mighty forkin’ noodles”…and for good reason! They hold up to the fork test every single time, unlike other noodles which tend to be flimsy and fall apart. You can find them in the freezer section of your local grocery store. And let me tell you…your kids will love noodles even more than they already do.
