One of my favorite side dishes. It is easy to make and has a fine taste.

I think the best way to describe these noodles would be like potato gnocchi, but with carrots instead of potatoes. I've never had anything like them before but they were tasty fried in butter and I think they would also be good in a soup or stew, instead of dumplings. The one problem I had was actually pushing them through a colander to get little noodle shapes. The dough was too wet for that so I dropped them into the water using a teaspoon, which seemed to work fine.
