Do y’all read Southern Living Magazine? I have been reading this publication for decades and it is my hands-down favorite! When I was a little girl growing up in Florida, we visited my paternal grandmother every Sunday. She was one of the first subscribers to Southern Living. I remember taking the magazine out to grandma’s front porch swing and getting lost in the pages. I dreamed of places to visit, recipes to make and decorating my bedroom. No kidding – it was my first foray into dreaming of my future self and what my home could look like.
I recently received an email from Southern Living with a recommended recipe for Roquefort Noodles. I was intrigued because I am a big fan of Roquefort cheese, even though it is a bit decadent 🙂 I thought – why not give it a try.
The egg noodles are cooking with chicken soup base and olive oil… I had never used chicken soup base before. It comes in a jar on the soup aisle of the grocery store. I was surprised that it was a thick liquid. Let me tell you, it made a huge difference in the flavor of the bland egg noodles. I will use this method again in my cooking.
This recipe is quick, easy and most importantly delicious! I think it could easily be tweaked by adding leftover chicken and peas or mushrooms. The tangy, creamy flavor of Roquefort is wonderful with the green onions and noodles. I do think I will reserve this recipe for holidays and special occasions as it is very rich and not good for my girly figure 🙂 but it will be hard to resist!
Southern Living has never steered me wrong. I have been cooking a long time and have made many, many recipes from their pages. I have never disliked any recipes that I have made. Several of my favorites were torn out of magazines from the past and are part of special holidays and celebrations – desserts, side dishes, salads and main dishes.
