Buttered Noodles Recipe

This is just so simple, but I’m putting it here since sometimes the simplest recipes are still worth writing down. Besides, I need to make a complete record for my son for when he grows up and moves out on his own.

This Buttered Noodle Recipe is a must have for parents as most kids will just gobble these noodles up day or night.

This recipe is for my son. Really, most people know how to make buttered noodles, but with this technique you will never have too much butter.


  • 1lb pasta (linguini pictured)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • .5 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes (or 2 Tbl fresh parsley, chopped)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (grated, to taste)


Step 1
Boil water and cook pasta according to package directions for “Al Dente” pasta. Remove and drain but DO NOT RINSE pasta.
Step 2
Keeping pasta in the colander, add the butter, garlic salt and parsley flakes and toss. Some butter may drip out, but that’s ok. You only want the amount of butter that will lightly coat your pasta. Serve topped with parmesan cheese and with your favorite dish, like the Grilled Chicken Parmesan Recipe.

  • I like the idea that you are posting even the simple recipes with the thought that someday your son’s going to be recreating these! What a wonderful gift/resource for him. It’s inspiring me!!

    • Thanks Karen! I just remember trying to do my mom’s ‘simple’ recipes, and never quite got it right without her right there reminding me of the little things she did. And I hope one day when he’s out on his own, he’ll be able to look through these recipes and be able to cook for himself all the things he loves.
