1⁄2 gallon water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
8 ounces extra-wide egg noodles
1⁄2 cup water
6 ounces butter
1 teaspoon parsley
6 Ritz crackers, crushed
Add 1 ½ bullion cubes to ½ gallon water in a medium pot, bring to a boil. Add noodles and set a timer for 1 min longer than the longest time listed on the package, stir a couple of times while cooking.
While noodles are boiling add 1/2 cup water, 1/2 chicken bouillon cube, and butter to the glass measuring cup. Microwave for 45 seconds on high, Stir. If the butter is not melted all the way microwave again for 30 seconds and mix well until the bullion is dissolved.
When noodles are done drain water from the pot but do not rinse, add butter mixture and parsley. Mix well until most liquid is absorbed, about a minute.
Serve immediately with crushed Ritz crackers on top.
