By Alice Vartanian
This delicious Armenian side dish is traditionally made with phyllo (filo) dough and can take time to assemble and prepare; this is a simpler version that Alice Vartanian of Fresno has made for her family and friends for many years, substituting egg noodles for the phyllo dough. It is perfect to serve at the holidays or for special occasions or luncheons, and will be enjoyed by everyone. Alice was born in Lowell, MA and is a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Levon Sarkisian, and the sister of Ogen Savoian and Stanley Sarkisian of Los Angeles.
16 oz. package medium wide egg noodles
