Passover Noodles

The Backstory: My cousin Elaine, who is a Holocaust survivor, gave me this recipe. She and I always chat on the phone every Friday night. She has filled me with stories of her youth and the years she spent as a young teenager in captivity. Her memories of her mother’s cooking have followed her and stayed with her throughout the decades. This is just one of the recipes that she shared with me  that I absolutely love and I know you will love making it for your family as well. More of the Backstory after the recipe
