I'm not sure exactly what those are
Egg noodles are a couple inches long, maybe .5 inches wide, kind of wavy and usually used as a bed like rice, or eaten with butter, but not usually used with tomato sauce... although I can't tell you why. Not that they couldn't be... Andy probably knows a British equivalent.

Egg noodles are a ribbon pasta similar to tagliatelle/fettuccine. Dry pastas such as fettuccine/tagliatelle usually don't contain egg. Also, as pac said, egg noodles are only a few inches long.

I literally don't know anything like what you described Pac!

Unless.... when you describe the dimensions are you talking about the dried product? When you cook it, does it look a bit like spaghetti? Because that might be actually what I call egg noodles too! (But here, we use noodles with Chinese style dishes).

(Reading Andy's comments - obviously not)

See above! I couldn't see anything that is half an inch wide by a couple of inches long and wavy!

I have a feeling it is called something else entirely over here and that there is no way it exists in my local store!

Love them with butter and a bit of black pepper and fresh chopped parsley.

Okay, if you took a flat sheet of lasagne, cut it half lengthwise, and curled the edges, would that be what you are talking about? I think I saw something like that on Australian Masterchef - but I can't remember what they called it (It was an Italian name.)
