  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp Noubess Original Hot and Spicy Sauce
  • 8 oz mushrooms sliced
  • 1 small yellow onion sliced
  • 1 garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Amino
  • 2 cups beef broth/chicken broth

  • Cook the egg noodles al dente and drain (do not rinse). Set aside in a bowl and drizzle olive oil over the noodles to keep them from sticking while making the sauce/gravy.

  • Add 1 tablespoon butter to the pan, mushrooms, onions, garlic, thyme, noubess original hot and spicy sauce, salt, and pepper. Sauté until golden brown, about 5 minutes, then add meat and onion mixture and blend. Set aside until the sauce is ready.
  • In a small pan, add 1 tablespoon butter, coconut amino, beef or chicken broth, and flour, whisking it together until well combined and the sauce starts to thicken.
  • Add noodles to the meat and mushroom mixture. Add the sauce and slowly mix to combine. Let ingredients heat up for about 2 - 3 minutes.
  • Sprinkle fresh herb and cheese before serving.
    Pasta Noodles with Leftover meat


  • Always cook the pasta al dente. 
  • Use any leftover meat or poultry you want, such as roasted chicken, roasted pork, or roasted beef. 
  • Slice up bell peppers, cook with the mushroom for flavor, and add more colors to the dish. 
  • Add other vegetables such as baby spinach, asparagus spears, or artichokes (marinated jarred). 
  • For cheese, swap Parmesan for Asiago Cheese or Pecorino Romano cheese to add a bit of nutty flavor and creamier texture.
  • Add fresh herbs at the end for flavor and freshness, parsley and basil. 
  • Keep the olive oil handy. You may need to wake up the noodles while you are making the sauce. Just a couple of tablespoons will help the noodles keep their shape and moisture. 
  • What to serve? Don’t worry! Roasted vegetables or salad are perfect for this recipe.
