Make Your Own Alfredo Noodle Mix
Remember, this mix is not meant to replace your homemade from scratch, rich, yummy Alfredo recipe! This for those nights when you need a quick side dish!
Feel free to add your own seasonings to taste. I usually just package the sauce packets alone and cook pasta from my pantry, but you can package them like my Hamburger Helper Kits and put noodles in a gallon sized bag and tuck the sauce packet in the big bag also. I cook about 8 oz. of dry angel hair or fetuccini pasta which is about 1 1/2 inches diameter bunch.
Alfredo Noodle Mix
This makes 2 sauce packets
1 Cup instant powdered milk
3-4 Tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese (or more to taste)
1/4 Cup dry minced onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder or granules
Mix above ingredients together and divide evenly into 2 ziplock bags or air tight containers. Attach the following directions to the sauce bag.
To Cook Alfredo Noodles:
Cook 8 oz. of dry pasta, drain. While pasta is cooking in saucepan or microwave safe bowl, mix alfredo mix, 2 Tablespoons of butter and 1/4 cup milk together, stirring till sauce is well blended. (I left out salt, so salt to taste). Toss gently onto drained pasta. serve.
