Dandy Noodles -- Backyard Renaissance Indeed!

Here is what we had for dinner last night: Dandelion noodles, picked with revenge in my garden, and eaten up with zest! So great, and so easy to make this recipe from the brand-new Ultimate Dandelion Cookbook! First, I sauteed the dandelions in a bit of water and then pureed them with an egg in the food processor, added flour and rolled out the dough:

Then, I let that dry a bit and then cut the noodles with a pizza cutter:

Then I cooked them and served with a homemade tomato mushroom sauce that I simmered for two hours with fresh parsley, oregano, and chives from my garden:

Just writing about it is making me hungry again! And this dish even got a rare complement from my wife, so you know that is success!! We will be having this again. Delicious! Get your copy of the Ultimate Dandelion Cookbook on Kindle by clicking on the link below. -Caleb
