Buttered Noodles Tips

What other kinds of noodles can you use in this recipe?

If you don't have egg noodles on hand, you can use other pasta shapes or types instead. Some of our recommendations for this buttered noodles recipe include fettuccine, spaghetti, pappardelle or rigatoni. Or you could go all out and make homemade egg noodles.

Should you salt the boiling water for this buttered noodles recipe?

We always recommend salting water when making pasta. Here's how to salt pasta water the right way.

How should you serve buttered noodles?

Serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese instead of the shelf-stable stuff (it's just so much better!). Make your noodle bowl a main dish by adding protein, such as chicken, to this pasta recipe. Or serve it as a side to an entree of pork, steak or salmon.
