Add cheese wedge, grated topping, and sour cream, breaking the cheese wedge into pieces as you add it. Microwave for 1 minute.

Stir well and then season with salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley and additional grated topping and serve with broccoli, if using. Enjoy!

    Yes...the noodles smell "fishy" when you open them up to strain and wash them. I recommend doing this recipe in a skillet (as the alternate directions suggest). Once the noodle have dried up and you add the cheese and sour cream and mix the dish comes together lickity split! Mix in the parmesan in your bowl and season with some salt and pepper and this is a delicious alternative to pasta. Seriously! Filling and satisfying.

    This was better than I was expecting. I made it for my employees after telling them all about it. Most loved it, only had one that was not so thrilled with the noodles. Rinsing, heating and drying noodles prior will help alot. I have made this a couple of times and varied the chees for variety. One of my favorite!!! Thanks Hungry Girl

    It was tasty....however, I couldn't get past the smell or the texture of the noodles. If you could keep the same calories with different noodles it would be at the top of my list.
