It’s not easy planning a quick side dish that will take up practically very little time and goes well with beef or chicken. This simple egg noodles with mushrooms side dish is very satisfying with a touch of garlic and shredded Parmesan cheese. A vegetarian friend of mine makes this as a main meal with a side salad for lunch or dinner.

  1. Sounds like the easy side I’ve been looking for! Quick question – is it really 3 tablespoons of minced garlic? That seems like more than “a touch.”

      A touch of garlic to me would be about 3 tablespoons. I am Italian and garlic is used in many of my recipes. But you certainly can reduce the garlic. It depends on your taste preferences. It is super easy to make. I hope you enjoy it!
