long life


N
oodles represent longevity in Asian cultures so I did my twist on this ancient custom - I made 4 foot long noodles!



Each one of these discs is a four foot noodle.



Excellent with butter, olive oil, cracked pepper and asiago cheese.



While I did not follow the typical 'longevity noodle' process or result I definitely had a really long noodle! Here's to you and may you all have long and fruitful lives.

I like the way you noodle!

Christina said...

Mmm love homemade pasta! I'll have a post up later this week where we made our own ravioli! It's such a different texture than dried pasta, I need to make the effort to make it more often!

Kitt said...

Neat idea! I've had the Chinese variety, but yours looks better for pasta sauce.

Happy New Year!

These are great for Chinese birthday celebrations! 4 foot long, that's very long life! LOL

So one noodle could maybe feed one person, is it essential to slurp the whole thing in one slurp to get the happiness and luck for the new year?

"Noodling" is a way to catch fish bare handed- generally catfish..

Joanne said...

Haha I love this. You definitely took the tradition to the max. Very cute.

And the pasta dish sounds and looks excellent.

Happy New Year!

Wow, those look so fun! We got obsessed with chinese noodles after watching "Kung Fu Panda"...ha!

Jamie said...

That is just too funny and clever and takes quiet a talent! But the done dish looks too delicious. That's called using your old noodle!

Diana H said...

Love noodles, maybe more than I should. You'll have to live long, just to eat all of those 4 foot noodles. They look delicious.
