These are tasty! The combination of flavors is refreshing. I served his along side a sauteed chicken greast and was in heaven. The fresh lemon peel adds great flavor, although I think I might try a little dash of garlic next time to see what that adds. All in all a delightful side dish: colorful and flavorful. Thanks Barb!

This recipe combines 3 of my favorite things - lemon, poppy seeds, and egg noodles! I adore anything lemon poppy seed so I knew this was a recipe for me. They have a very light and delicate flavor, and I prefer a stronger lemony taste - so I increased the grated lemon zest to a whole teaspoon and added some lemon juice as well. I also increased the chives for a bolder flavor. This makes a very pretty dish and pairs so well with chicken and fish. I will make this often, thanks so much for posting!

the flavor was real nice and suttle. I thought they were a little dry but I added a little more water and were great
