Cook egg noodles according to package directions; drain and return to pot. Stir in butter and remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
Note: We substituted 1 (8-ounce) package of thin spaghetti for the egg noodles and added chopped cooked ham and steamed broccoli. Sautéing the ham in a lightly greased skillet over medium-high heat gives it a crisp and smoky bacon-like flavor.
Very simple and easy, it tastes very fresh and has a southwest ranch kind of flavor. Its nothing spectacular if you follow the recipe verbatim but add in some spices and its pretty damn good. My picky eater loves it :)
Unfortunately, this was not my family's favorite. Not mine either. We ate it, but I won't be making it again. I'm not quite sure what it was--maybe the warm Ranch-dressing tangyness that turned us off? I'm sure that some folks would love it; it just wasn't our personal taste.
One last note: I don't like to be contradictory, but this definitely does not taste like Alfredo sauce, as one other reviewer stated. There are some great, simple Alfredo recipes out there, but this is not meant to be one of them.
