    1/2 cup butter, divided
    8 ounces uncooked medium egg noodles
    medium onion, finely chopped
    1 celery stalk, finely chopped
    1 garlic toe, minced

    Good question. This recipe came from allrecipes.com website and I was just happy to make a dish without convenience food products. Thanks!

  • Nice to have a from scratch option - by not using a canned soup we get less sodium and a lot less preservatives. - 4/6/13
