As far as sides go, grab your favorites! A pasta dish goes great with a side of toasted bread while a lunch wrap or sandwich is best paired with a salad, steamed veggies, or even some fries.

What do you do with leftover egg noodles?

If you end up with more egg noodles than you know what to do with, you may need to repurpose them. Don’t head for the trash just yet, there are a few things you can do!
