Fun and Filling Noodles

By Colleen Messina
1     Many people think that a steaming bowl of noodles is very comforting to eat. Swirls of spaghetti covered with zesty sauce or macaroni oozing with cheese might be the first types of soothing pasta that come to mind. There are a lot of different kinds of noodles, and they come in all sizes and shapes. Noodles are filling and fun to eat!
 
2     What exactly is a noodle? One dictionary says, "a noodle is a type of food made from unleavened dough that is cooked in a boiling liquid." One basic noodle recipe calls for just flour, eggs, salt, and water. That sounds simple, doesn't it? Homemade noodles are fun to make and taste delicious. They are exceptionally filling!
 
3     There are many kinds of noodles. The names of Italian pasta translate into some funny phrases. Some noodles have names related to something they resemble. Capellini means "thin hair." Fusilli lunghi means "long rifles." The word lasagna actually means "cooking pot," while ditalini means "little thimbles."
