Egg Noodles

Buying Tips

Look for egg noodles in the pasta or bulk food section of natural food or grocery stores.


Egg noodles are usually short, flat noodles, but may come in the form of fettuccine, tagliatille, and other shapes.

Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Add noodles a few at a time to salted boiling water. To prevent noodles from sticking to the bottom of the pan, stir gently until the water returns to a rapid boil. Cooking time varies depending on the type of pasta. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking. Toss with asparagus, olive oil, and grated Parmesan, or use in casseroles.


Store them, unopened, in a cool, dry cupboard for six to eight months.
