Pennsylvania Dutch cooking has roots in Germany, where many hearty recipes, like these comforting and flavorful buttery egg noodles, get their traditional taste from!Makes 6 Servings

  • 1 (8-ounce) package medium egg noodles (see Note)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and place in a large serving bowl; keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add caraway seeds and sauté 3 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, parsley, salt, and pepper.
  3. Pour sauce over cooked noodles and serve immediately.

NOTE: I like to use medium egg noodles that have a fluffy, curled edge. It gives the dish an elegant look.
