Instructions

  • Prepare pasta according to its directions.

Notes

We recommend using organic ingredients when possible.
If you prefer you can mix in a tablespoon of butter to the drained noodles before adding in the sour cream and parmesan. This helps the noodles from sticking together and also adds a little extra flavor.
