Crunchy Parmesan Spaghetti – Summer Side Dish
Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On May 16, 2012 @ 5:40 pm In Pasta,Recipes,Side Dish | 6 Comments
With a little crunch.
Served warm or cooled.
I’m loving these noodles as a side dish this summer. They are the perfect compliment to grilled chicken, steaks and/or shrimp “on the barbie”, and grilled pork chops.
It’s uber simple…instead of tossing with marinara or meat sauce, you toss the cooked noodles with a mixture of bread crumbs and grated Parmesan/Romano cheese.
The result is amazing!
