Garlic noodles…just the name alone conjures up buttery, garlicky, flavorful noodles with Parmesan cheese, a popular Asian-flavored noodles found in many restaurants. Now what’s better than garlic noodles? These nutty, intensely aromatic Brown Butter Garlic Noodles.
I created my famous Garlic Noodles recipe 10 years ago, in 2008. Many of my readers have since tried the recipe and loved it. Today, I am upgrading the recipe with fewer and easy-to-get ingredients, with brown butter.
What is Brown Butter
Brown butter is basically butter, but “cooked” over high heat until the butter becomes foamy and turn brown in color.
The heat “cooks” the milk contents in the butter so they form the brown bits in the butter, hence turning the butter brown in color.

When cooked with brown butter and seasoned with oyster sauce and Parmesan noodles, this simple noodle dish becomes one of the most delicious noodle recipe ever!
You can eat these noodles plain, or with a simple protein dish such as grilled shrimp. Bon appetit!
