1 tablespoon butter or butter substitue
2 tablesppons dried parsley
1 tablespoon dried onions
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Cook pasta of choice. This can be any pasta you like and that includes angel hair or elbow mac. Whatever you like or happen to have on hand. Cook according to package directions then allow to cool. While the pasta cools, mix the other ingredients in a large microwaveable bowl. Add the pasta. Microwave for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir to mix.
For those who prefer, you can skip the microwave and cook the noodle in the oven for 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven, stir, cook for five minutes more.
