When you think of recipes with egg noodles, you probably think of soups (specifically chicken noodle soup), stroganoff dishes, and kugel.
While all of these things are incredibly yummy, there are tons of other things you can do with egg noodles, including a few dessert options, though I won’t cover many of those here.
However, if you’re looking for a rich, hearty dinner that’s full of tasty, filling egg noodles, lots of spices and herbs, and other delicious ingredients, you’ve come to the right place.
These 25 recipes with egg noodles include all the most obvious ones (mentioned above), as well as traditional dishes from other regions, such as Ukrainian casserole and German spaetzle.
Whether you’re looking for something comforting that feels like home or something unique and outside your usual wheelhouse, this list has you covered.
1. Chicken Noodle Soup
It doesn’t get much more comforting than chicken noodle soup.
It’s the ultimate ‘feel better’ food whether you’re sick, tired, or just feeling lonely and homesick.
With this recipe, you can make the best home-style chicken noodle soup, complete with veggies and plenty of flavorful and aromatic spices.
2. Beef Noodle Soup
If you love the idea of comforting chicken noodle soup but prefer beef to chicken, use this recipe for beef noodle soup instead.
You’ll still get the wide, buttery egg noodles and all the yummy veggies, but instead of chicken, you’ll enjoy succulent chunks of beef that are so tender, they’ll fall apart in your mouth.
3. Cheesy Egg Noodles
Sometimes, the simplest meals are the best, and it doesn’t get much simpler than this seven-ingredient, 35-minute cheesy egg noodle dish.
All you’ll need to make it are egg noodles, flour, butter, whole milk, sharp cheddar, salt, and pepper. It’s supremely cheesy, buttery, and delicious.
4. German Spaetzle (Egg Noodles)
German spaetzle takes egg noodles and makes them look like – well, anything but egg noodles.
They’re chewy and tasty, and you can make them in just 15 minutes.
The great thing about them is that you can use them in a wide variety of dishes, whether you’re making something sweet, spicy, or savory.
5. Buttered Egg Noodles
I can’t make, talk about, or even think about buttered noodles without picturing Abed from Community (and more recently, Sam from Atypical).
Exactly what is it about these tasty, tender, butter-flavored noodles that make people – and characters on TV – love them so much?
Well, I think it’s because they’re tasty, tender, butter-flavored noodles! It doesn’t get much better or more scrumptious than that.
6. Ukrainian Traditional Egg Noodle Casserole
This traditional Ukrainian dish is one of the most straightforward egg noodle recipes you can make.
It requires only four ingredients: egg noodles, milk, eggs, and smoked sea salt.
The noodles on the inside of the casserole get soft and creamy, but the ones on top remain crunchy, which gives this casserole the perfect soft and crispy texture.
7. Sweet Noodle Kugel
With sour cream, cottage cheese, sugar, cinnamon, and plenty of butter, this kugel dish may be sweeter than you’re used to eating.
Still, if you’re looking for a sweet treat that’s light and relatively easy to make, sweet noodle kugel is an excellent option.
8. Beef Stroganoff
Surprisingly, you can whip up this rich and hearty homemade beef stroganoff in just 30 minutes, and no, you won’t need Hamburger Helper to do it!
It’s 100% from scratch, and it’s divine.
It’s creamy, garlicky, and full of juicy, well-seasoned steak. If you’re looking for a warm meal that’ll fill your belly all night long, this is it.
9. Pizza Noodle Casserole
Pizza, noodles, and casserole are three things that don’t really go together, unless you combine them using this recipe, of course.
Then, they’ll taste fantastic together.
You’ll start with a base of cheesy egg noodles.
To that, you’ll add ground beef, onions, peppers, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, pizza sauce, mushrooms, and pepperoni.
It tastes like a loaded pepperoni and veggie pizza, only with egg noodles instead of crust.
10. Reuben Noodle Casserole
You can also make a mean Reuben casserole with egg noodles in the same fashion.
If you love the classic Reuben sandwich but want to try something new, make it in casserole form instead.
11. Chicken Noodle Casserole
Seriously, you can turn practically anything into a casserole, including chicken noodle soup.
Simply leave out the broth and go heavy on the chicken and veggies instead.
For this recipe, you’ll also use milk and cream of chicken (or mushroom) soup to make it nice and creamy, and you’ll add a crunchy, crumbly topping of butter, breadcrumbs, and cheddar cheese.
12. Turkey Tetrazzini with Egg Noodles
Most of the work you’ll put in to make this turkey tetrazzini dish goes into the sauce.
It’s an elaborate, complex sauce that requires 14 ingredients (primarily spices and herbs), and it tastes absolutely jaw-on-the-floor amazing.
You’ll start with white wine, whole milk, heavy cream, and chicken broth.
To that, you’ll add mushrooms, onions, celery, garlic, butter, flour, thyme, oregano, sea salt, and pepper.
Honestly, I could eat the sauce by itself and be just fine.
But the whole thing tastes better with the turkey, broccoli, egg noodles, and the cheese and breadcrumb topping.
13. Ham and Noodle Casserole
Ham and cheese is one of those combinations that never goes out of style, and this creamy, cheesy casserole is evidence of that.
It has a terrific cheese and garlic flavor that the whole family will love, and you can make enough to feed them all in just 45 minutes.
14. Amish Egg Noodles
Amish egg noodles are simply buttered noodles with chicken broth and bouillon added for extra flavor.
They’re tender and flavorful and go well with practically anything.
15. Beef Noodle Casserole
While I completely understand people’s appreciation for the traditional American ham and cheese pairing, my favorite food combination will always be tomatoes, cheese, and noodles.
And that’s precisely what this beef noodle casserole is: buttery noodles slathered in cheddar cheese and tomato sauce, with some beef, onions, and herbs and seasonings added, too.
16. Beef Taco Pasta
After making beef taco pasta, you’ll be shocked at how much flavor you can pack into a single dish.
It’s like having authentic, south of the border taco salad, but with noodles instead of tortillas.
Of course, if beef isn’t your thing, you can substitute chicken, ground turkey, or something else.
You can even leave out the meat entirely, but it’ll be less juicy and filling that way.
17. Turkey Noodle Casserole
If you’re looking for a hearty meal that you can whip up in 30 minutes or less, look no further than turkey noodle casserole.
It’s cheesy and herby and has turkey and veggies for a complete meal in a single dish.
Plus, everything is fresh – no boxed or prepackaged ingredients here!
18. Skillet Tuna Noodle Casserole
This rich and creamy casserole is ideal for anyone looking for quick meals that take only 20 minutes to make.
The dish is extra creamy, thanks to the butter, milk, tuna, and cheese, and it has a ton of umami flavor from the tuna and garlic.
The topping of parmesan, cracker crumbs, and parsley is optional, but there’s no way I’d leave it off. It’s just too tasty.
19. Fried Cabbage and Noodles
Fried cabbage is healthy and easy to make, but it can sometimes get a little boring, especially if you have it often.
Jazz your fried cabbage up by adding wide egg noodles the next time you make it.
It’s still basically the same dish – cabbage, onions, and butter – but the noodles make it more appealing.
20. Hungarian Beef Goulash
So, what precisely is in Hungarian goulash?
As it turns out, quite a bit of yummy stuff.
There are large chunks of well-seasoned, juicy stew beef, carrots, garlic cloves, red bell peppers, beef broth, tomato paste, egg noodles, and more.
This is one hearty, healthy meal that’s perfect for warming you up on those long, cold winter nights.
21. Amish Country Casserole
Here’s another scrumptious casserole we should be grateful to the Amish for!
This is a creamy casserole of egg noodles tossed in ground beef and tomato-mushroom sauce
Minced garlic and dried onion flakes are added to give a sweet and peppery flavor to contrast the richness of the sauce.
Serve the casserole with garlic bread and garden salad for a satisfying meal.
22. Hungarian Chicken Paprikash Over Egg Noodles
Hungarian chicken paprikash is a delectable dish of chicken covered with a blanket of thick and creamy sauce.
The sauce is primarily made of thickened sour cream, but it gets its bright red hue from sweet paprika.
Unlike regular paprika, sweet paprika is fruity, a tad bitter, and not hot at all.
Because this dish is so saucy, there’s only one way to serve this: on top of a bed of al dente egg noodles.
23. Garlic Butter Noodles
This recipe highlights the simplicity of egg noodles in all their glory.
Cooked with just garlic, butter, parmesan cheese, and a little bit of salt and pepper, this humble dish is comfort food at its best.
This recipe is proof that you really don’t need much to transform plain noodles into a phenomenal dish!
24. Hamburger Helper
This hamburger helper is a cheesy and beefy dish that can feed a crowd.
It’s egg noodles tossed in a meaty sauce and tons of cheese. Think of it as a cheeseburger turned into an egg noodle dish.
Despite it being super quick and easy to make, this dish won’t disappoint. Serve this at a party and it’ll be the first to disappear!
25. Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
This casserole has all you love in chicken cordon bleu, and then some.
It’s egg noodles tossed with ham, chicken, cheese, and a creamy mushroom sauce. The dish gets sprinkled with crushed Ritz crackers and then baked to perfection.
This dish is ridiculously rich with a crunchy crust on top! How awesome is that?
