This is my family's recipe for an Eastern European Jewish favorite. This side dish is traditionally made with bowtie noodles. It is flavorful and addictively delicious. Definitely not for the carb-shy! I am gluten-free and sadly, there are no gluten-free bowtie noodles on the market. If you are gluten-free, Hoffner's GF egg noodles or Glutano brand tagliatelle (made of maize) work best. Buckwheat, by the way, is not related to wheat and is gluten-free (and tasty).
