Buttered noodles are a quick, easy and delicious side dish that goes well with fish or chicken or veggies. They are even perfect on their own with a little bit of ketchup.
Cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain and set aside. Reserve about half a cup of the water used for boiling the noodles.
Melt butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add in the cooked pasta and mix it around in the butter for a couple of minutes. Add the reserved water.
For added zing and freshness, add the zest and juice of half a lemon. Add salt and pepper to taste, then toss everything together and serve with accompaniment of your choice.
