Cafeteria noodles ingredients:
- Egg noodles: These are a type of pasta that contains eggs and wheat. They are affordable and perfect for the buttery sauce to cling.

- Butter: I used unsalted butter.

Boil the chicken broth with a tablespoon of chicken bouillon. Add the egg noodles and reduce to a simmer.
