Garlic and cheese noodles is quite an interesting combination depending on the type of cheese you use. For me the concept of this meal is reminiscent of mac and cheese. All that is missing is cut up hot dogs as the protein for this meal but with this you can participate in the meatless Monday movement. There is always a silver lining in everything we do. I make noodles very often in a week. Sometimes once or twice when I don’t have time to make a full meal. Noodles are very popular in many homes in the world and it is not any different in Nigeria. There have been adaptations for the country in terms of spicier versions.
Cheese is not typically an ingredient we use in Nigerian cooking but if you have followed my blog, when have you ever known me to do the regular? Not my style lol. As long it is accessible in Nigeria, I plan to cook with it. I stepped into Shoprite and saw some parmesan cheese on the shelf and bought some. My intent was to use the parmesan for a lot more than noodles but I decided why not? If you want to impress some friends, make this garlic and cheese noodles recipe for them and I promise they would love it. Check some other noodles recipes I have here
