New Year's Eve Menu- Parmesan Noodles

So I spent my night prepping and cooking my New Year's Eve Dinner for me and my boyfriend. I cooked Veal, Calamari, Soup and pasta. All of the hours of cooking and prepping, and guess what: He loved the pasta the best! Out of everything I made, all of the hard work, he couldn't get enough of the pasta. So if you don't want this simple, yet very tasty dish to outshine everything else, make it by itself!

What You'll Need:

1 pound wide egg noodles
