Addictive Buttered Noodles

Who doesn't love a good classic comfort noodle side dish? There's something about creamy, buttery, and lightly savory noodles that's so relaxing when you eat them and the simple flavor keeps you coming back for more. This version of buttered noodles is one of my favorite easy and quick side dishes to make when I don't feel like cooking rice with my dinner. This recipe also is one of my brother's favorite recipes and he always gets excited whenever I cook it as a side to my Easy Baked Savory Rotisserie Chicken. I'm happy to share my buttered noodles recipe and I hope it becomes a staple recipe in your house as well! If you don't want to make buttered noodles as a side dish, its also delicious with chicken, beef, or sauteed vegetables added to it as well!
