March is halfway over and I can't believe we haven't celebrated this.
How are we serving them up this month?
You like a nice white sauce? Heavy cream? Is your forte a hot dish?
For those of you with a passion for meat or meat sauce, for variety, try rolling balls. This is a traditional practice and one you should familiarize yourself with if you have a yen for noodles.
Chicken noodle? Oh, not for me, babe. You've got the wrong guy, fella.
Do you like your noodles thick or thin?
Bars and restaurants are a great place to find and experiment with different types of noodles. You may enjoy them there, or take them to-go and enjoy them in the comfort of your home.
Personally, I find fresh noodles easier to work with. They taste the best, hold more flavor, have a more appealing texture and make for the most satisfying meal.
Storing noodles is a matter of personal preference. There are many fine containers on the market for this purpose. Just make sure they are not packed too tightly.
I hear some people, in order to determine if they're done, throw them against a wall to see if they stick. I consider this noodle abuse.
Sometimes I like to see how many I can fit on my plate and make a pig of myself.
The thing with noodles? They can really fill you up. So, I find less is more, though I know many Italian men who would disagree.
The most important thing? Enjoy your noodles.
Yes, I know there are those out there who would make you feel guilty for consuming too many, but life is short...
...and the best noodles are long!
