Egg Noodles with Tomato Herb Sauce; books & beets — 5 Comments

  1. WOW! You really do have a lot of cookbooks!

    I’m all for trying something new and I’m sure I’d love this recipe if I can convince myself not to expect pasta taste. But that’s my own problem. It looks delicious and I might have to try it to find out 😉

    Our garden centers will be reopening May 1. The ground isn’t quite warm enough yet to plant, but at least I’ll be able to after all.

    • The texture is pretty good but the taste is different – that’s where the sauce comes in. We’re hoping for the 11th here. Will know next week

  2. I’ve gone through my book collections several times and donated large numbers of ones I didn’t think I’d read again – I could still stock a small library. And I’ve been trying to find another copy of one I donated for years. 🙂 I think I’d have to read steadily ’til about age 120 to re-read all the ones I’ve kept. Books are like friends, and giving them up is painful!

    The noodles sound interesting – when eggs become plentiful here again, I’ll give them a try.

    • My problem is I can’t donate them. No one wants English books, and no one really wants books anymore. Recipes are all online. I keep the ones that are fun to read. And the classics, Someone would be very upset if I ever got rid of Joy of Cooking….

  3. How brave are you?!

    I have been told, on a number of occasions, that I am NOT to get any more cookbooks, unless I remove the ones I never look at.

    But, but, but, I might look at them! So, what I have done is move the books to a different shelf in my office – a shelf that won’t be noticed by anyone but me. (Actually, there are now two shelves like this….)

    Your noodle dish looks wonderful. And won’t it be even more wonderful when you can start thinning those beets a little by cutting some of the leaves to add to the noodle dish. (Eggs are still a little tricky to find here – we are reduced to having to buy {eeeek} supermarket eggs.)
