Notes

  • Add a splash or two of broth or heavy cream to the pan if it seems like the noodles aren't quite cooked through but there isn't much liquid left in the pan. You can also cover the pan with a lid during the cooking process which will prevent the liquid from evaporating while cooking the noodles more quickly.
  • Add extra cream towards the end of the cooking process if you want saucier noodles.
  • The sauce will thicken as it sits so feel free to add an extra splash or two of heavy cream to loosen it up or make it saucier.
  • Season moderately with salt and pepper throughout the cooking process. The ingredient list is short and sweet which means salt and pepper are really going to too boost the overall flavor of the dish so don't skimp - especially on the salt.
  • This dish is a great way to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving! Just use the turkey in place of the rotisserie chicken.
