Buttered Noodles –

  • 1/2 package of egg noodles (I used wide noodles.)
  • 1.5 to 2 Tbsp. of butter
  • salt and pepper
  1. Boil the noodles according to the directions on the package.  Drain the noodles (save about 1/2 cup of the starchy cooking water).
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave for about a minute.  Add some of the cooking water to make a sauce.
  3. Add the drained egg noodles.  Stir to cover the noodles.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.

My oldest son loved the noodles.
