TODAY IS NOODLE RING DAY
With Christmas so close around the corner, in December it’s easy to overlook some of the most unusual days honoring some of the more unusual foodstuffs. But this time of year is just as good a time as any to learn about noodle rings, and celebrate just how tasty they are!
A noodle ring is, rather predictably, made from noodles – especially the flat, tagliatelle type egg noodles. It’s made using a ring mold, or a Bundt tray, with ingredients including cheese, eggs, and flour along with the noodles. When it’s pressed out of its tray, you’ve got a thick ring of delicious noodles baked to perfection.
How to celebrate Noodle Ring Day
If you’ve got the right ring mold (or, as its more commonly called, a Bundt tray), then you’re all set to celebrate this stylish-looking pasta meal. It works best with long, flat egg noodles, but you can use any kind of pasta that you like.
