    This is a quick and easy side dish. Served this topped with recipe #198139.

    Yipee! I was looking for a carb to go with tonights dinner and the easiest thing I had on hand was half a box of rotini. I looked for a quick noodle side, but everything required parmesan, which I happen to be out of. I saw this one, and was rather skeptic, but when I saw it was 'Nurse Di', I opted to try it since I'm pretty sure I've made other 'Nurse Di' recipes and they turned out good. ^ ^ Long story short, my family LOVED it! I was amazed because it's so few ingredients, but it turned out really tasty. My husband even 'gave me permission' to make this whenever I wanted. Thanks for a great side dish!

    Poppy seed noodle is a popular dish in Hungary (and probably in other Eastern-European countries, too). Try out the following variation: - skip the pepper - get more poppy seed (say 1/2 cup), mix it with sugar (depends on taste, I usually have 1 part sugar, 3 parts poppy seed or so) - grind the poppy seed/sugar mix in a small spice/coffee blade grinder. You need to grind it for ~20-30 seconds, the poppy seed will get stuck to the side of the grinder after a while, you can stop it then. Add a generous amount to the pasta - much more than what is shown in the original recipe. It should look like the attached picture. Grinding brings out a much richer poppy seed flavor. P.S. don't forget to brush your teeth after the meal :)
