Egg Noodles
 
The other day I was chatting with several of you about "egg noodles" and I said I would thoroughly check out the pasta aisle on my next visit to Sainsburys - which was earlier this afternoon. And I think I found them!

These are the brand that Sainsburys stocks, and they are called Mafalda Corta:

Is this close enough?

Sainsburys only does a wholewheat version - which I am not fond of. If they do a non-wholewheat version at some point I will definitely get some. I can certainly see how the "frilly" edges are good for holding sauce. :wink:

"Suitable for vegetarians"
Does that mean no egg?
They look like nice noodles. Kind of like mini lasagna noodles.
I'm not sure they would pass as egg noodles, but I'd eat them!

I didn't actually check to see if they had egg in them! Doh!! (I was just looking for something of a similar shape).

Epic fail! :lol:

(I blame Sainsburys) :rolleyes:

No egg in those noodles. I'd eat them too.

I wouldn't! (Though not because of the lack of egg - just the wholewheat - it makes pasta pretty heavy and stodgy).

That's OK. According to the Amazon site, it's not available!

Yes, but it IS available at Sainsburys! (I only used the Amazon link because it showed the product quite well).

I only buy wholewheat pasta made in Italy. Omnomnom. Some of the stuff I have tried in the past that wasn't made in Italy was pretty awful, and I eat whole grain pretty much everything.

Here's a typical egg noodles brand: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0025U...sr=8-1&pi=SL75

I like wholegrain bread, but wholegrain anything else I find quite unpalatable.
