Menu: Armenian Noodles
1 package thin or medium egg noodles
1 pound Monterey jack cheese grated
½ stick butter
1 bunch finely chopped parsley (without stems)Lawry’s salt, pepper
Butter a 9x13 Pyrex dish
Cook noodles in boiling, salted water until tender.
Drain noodles and layer half in the Pyrex dish. Mix parsley and jack cheese. Layer cheese mixture on top of noodles and cover with remaining noodles. Dot with butter salt and pepper. Bake at 350 degrees until browned on top usually about 30-35 minutes. This is a delicious casserole that can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator for 1-2 days or in the freezer. Serve with a salad and bread and your family is very happy.
This is also a great casserole to bring to a potluck.
Reflections from the Backcounter
This is one of my husband's absolute favorites. He grew up on these and he considers them a staple meal. We usually have one of these casseroles in the freezer for evenings that are short on time or energy. Tonight there was a cross country meet and two of my little darlings did not return home until 8 p.m. A perfect night for noodles...Try these ...you will love them...I always like a little extra salt sprinkled on top ( Hypertension city!!!)
I have a few random thoughts on the election that I need to share. Forget your political affiliation. Think in broader and more humorous terms and I am sure that you will never look at the election in the same way again.. Think back to the days of the epic Hollywood production....
Charlton Heston at his best...parting the red sea, casts of thousands populating the big screen all in Technicolor!!!.. I am confident that the executives from central casting on those epic Hollywood movies have found a new calling...casting the presidential elections. Consider this...nothing short of a Hollywood casting director could have provided us with a better cast. We have: An African American man, a woman, a war hero, a husband of Eskimo descent, a Roman Catholic, a pregnant teen, a baby with Downs, a daughter of a beer baron, two darling little girls with perfect hair and patent leather shoes, a blogger, and an adopted child from none other that Mother Teresa's orphanage!!!
I think we are almost ready for the burning bush or at the very least a chariot race!
On to Thursday...try the noodles...your family will clamor for more
