Bacon Sour Cream Noodles

Noodles with a sour cream sauce, salty bacon and the surprise of the bunch – cabbage! They come together in no time at all to make a comforting and hearty side dish that can fill in as a main.

Michael Symon made this in 5 minutes on his new show, The Chew. Have you seen it? I’m just a wee bit addicted to it, mostly because I like hearing Symon giggle and I like his style of cooking. It brings me joy. Not to mention Carla from Top Chef is a part of it too. Love her. Hootie-hoo.

This is my entry for Side Dish Saturdays, a weekly event I started to bring more attention to side dishes and give them the respect and love they deserve.

I would love it if you linked up your side dishes! I only have two guidelines for linking to the event.

Your link must be a side dish; no soups or recipes with meat/poultry. Old posts are ok but. . .

The post must have a link back to my site. All other links will be deleted; every link will be checked.

The linky will be open until Monday at midnight eastern time. If you get here late – no worries – just link up next week.

Side Dish Saturdays: Bacon Sour Cream Noodle Surprise

Noodles with a sour cream sauce, salty bacon and the surprise of the bunch - cabbage! They come together in no time at all to make a comforting and hearty side dish that can fill in as a main.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions:

  1. Cook bacon in large skillet over medium-low heat until crispy; drain on paper towels. Cook pasta according to package directions in plenty of salted water.
  2. Meanwhile, carefully drain grease from pan; add butter, onion and cabbage. Cook over medium-low heat until tender, stirring often. Drizzle olive oil over top and season with salt and pepper.
  3. 3. Add noodles and sour cream to cabbage. Toss well. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Sprinkle parsley and crumble bacon over top. Serve immediately.

    I love that there’s cabbage in this! I seem to run out of ideas for using all the cabbage I get from my CSA in the winter, and next time I’ll remember this.

    Cabbage certainly was a surprise!  Last week I was just talking to my stepmom about her love of cabbage so it’s funny you have this side dish today!  I will have to send it to her!

    Purrs and scritches to Moon!

    Looks yummy!  I love your recipes and writing style too.  I’m also addicted to The Chew – they make you feel like you’re hanging out with them.
