        These Noodles use very little flour, allowing us to have a light 'pasta' first course.  We're mixing Mediterranean countries again, with our main course being Spanish.  An easy dinner that is easily expandable for a small party.  The egg noodles can be made in advance and everything simply 'increased'.
