Use Your Noodle

This is my brain on noodles.



I’m okay with that.

Fresh pasta is very doable.

By hand or mixing machine, you can do it.  Click here  for a quick recipe.


As one who makes full use of boxed pasta and packaged noodles, or pre-made from my local Italian foods market, I am equal opportunity noodle–as long as it gets in my belly, it’s all good.


Though I did recently read in Cook’s Illustrated their advisement against using packaged egg noodles in sauced dishes e.g. bolognese as they don’t absorb the flavors as well as fresh.  But if you need the convenience of a packaged noodle, go for it.  Your stomach will absorb just fine.


“Get in my belly!”
