Is God Imaginary? doesn’t discriminate. We love the unconventional holidays just as much as the conventional ones! Today just so happens to be Noodle Ring Day, and we’d like to wish you a wonderful one!
Noodle Ring Day? What The Heck Is That?
It’s exactly what it sounds like. Apparently it was most popular in the mid 1900s (well before my time) when molds and bundt pans were all the rage (boy I’m glad I was born later than the jello mold craze).
Want To Celebrate? Here’s How
Depending on where you are, I might be a little late for this (although really, it’s never too late to eat some delicious carbs!), but since it’s not even five o clock here in Northern Canada, I’ve taken care of planning dinner for you (Nice of me, isn’t it? My holiday gift to you). Here’s what you’ll need:
- Cooked pasta
- Eggs (enough to coat the mixture. How many will vary depending on how much pasta you use)
- A cheese that easily melts (my personal favourite is a mix of pepperjack and marble, but do as you please).
- Filling of some sort (more on that in a minute).
- A mold or bundt pan.
Mix the first four ingredients together until well blended. Stick it in a mold or bundt pan until the cheese is melted and the eggs are cooked (Again, your cooking time will vary according to your mixture, but 20 minutes at 325 should probably do the trick). Let it cool for a minute or so before popping it onto a plate and filling with a mixture of your choice!
Here are some of the more common fillings:
- Chicken Salad
- Meat Sauce
- Steamed and buttered veggies
- Canned tuna or salmon
As you can see, it’s kind of like a pasta bake (but better!). In the event that you’ve already had dinner and/or none of those fillings look very appealing to you, here’s a variation that you might enjoy:
Use a milder cheese (or omit it altogether) and add a little bit of sugar to the mix. Let it cool completely and fill it with one of these instead:
- Ice cream
- Pie Filling
Add crushed up cookies and/or whipped cream for even more yum.
Noodle Ring Day might sound unconventional, but who likes normal anyway? At the very least, it’ll be a nice change-up from your regular routine (and an excuse to use that bundt pan you’ve had sitting underneath your stove since you first moved out of your parents’ house).
