Sour Creamy Pasta

Sour Creamy Pasta

This is probably the easiest pasta dish on the planet. I first got the recipe from a suitemate in college and have put my own spin on the idea. With just 4 ingredients, this pasta recipe allows for a lot of Dad’s touch, and “doctoring up.”

4 ingredient pasta

Box of pasta, 16oz of sour cream, a stick of butter, and spices. The original recipe called for chives and garlic salt, but I replaced it with garlic powder and parsley this time around.

Boil pasta. Any kind of pasta.

Boil water. Add pasta — any kind will do. Try to aim for about 8oz of pasta or more. I only used about 6oz of angelhair and there was a little too much sauce.

Did you know: Water takes about 10 minutes to boil on high heat? Time it and forget it!

Butter and sour cream for the sauce. That's it. Easy, right?

Drain your pasta. Using the same pan while hot, melt the stick of butter and add the whole container of sour cream. I never claimed this was healthy pasta.

Add spices.

Mix sour cream and butter until mixed and the stick of butter is fully incorporated. You shouldn’t need any additional heat, but you can turn it on low to help the process. Add your spices and mix well.

Add pasta to sauce. Stir. Serve.

Add your pasta back to the sauce. Mix well. Best served hot.

Tip: If you pasta sticks together in the strainer, run some hot water over it to loosen it up again. You’ll never get noodles all over the stove again.

Serve with chicken, cheese, or other toppings.

Add in whatever you want to make it just right. We like plain cooked chicken.

My recipe:

  • 8oz pasta of any type
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 16oz sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder with parsley

Boil water. Add pasta and cook according to the box. Drain. Add butter and sour cream to hot pan. Mix until butter is fully melted. Add spices and stir to combine. Return pasta to pan and mix well. Add cooked chicken if desired. Serve hot.
