Tips and Tricks

Extra Flavor

For an extra burst of flavor, consider adding a splash of lemon juice or a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese just before serving. This can elevate the dish with a bright, tangy note or a rich, cheesy depth.

Herbs and Spices

Try adding fresh herbs like parsley, basil, or thyme to the noodles for a fresh, aromatic touch. You can also experiment with spices like red pepper flakes or paprika for a bit of heat and color.

Cooking Garlic

To avoid burning the garlic, keep an eye on it while cooking and stir frequently. Burnt garlic can add a bitter taste to your dish. If you prefer a milder garlic flavor, cook the garlic at a lower heat for a longer period.

Noodle Texture

If you like your noodles with a bit more texture, cook them al dente according to the package instructions before adding them to the skillet. This will ensure they don’t get too soft when mixed with the other ingredients.

Adjusting Butter and Oil

Feel free to adjust the amount of butter and olive oil to suit your taste and dietary preferences. For a lighter version, you can reduce the butter and add more olive oil or even use a mix of both.
