How should I keep noodles hot for a buffet?

I am hosting a family gathering, this coming weekend, and will be
serving Beef Bourguignon.
I'm not sure how to keep the noodles hot on the buffet table. Would
putting them in a crock pot on a warm setting and adding lots of butter
be a good way to go?
Yes its OK but - depending on the time between servings - you don't need lots of
butter - the fat coats the noodles and prevents the sauce from merging with the
noodles. Keep about a cup or two of the pasta water handy (hot) - if the
noodles start to stick add a few tablespoons of the starchy water and stir.
