Carrots with Egg Noodles and Lemon

Yield: 4 servings.


I serve this dish with roasts of all kinds, as well as with barbecued meats. You could substitute orzo, the rice-shaped pasta, for noodles if you like.


4 carrots, trimmed and scraped (about 1/4 pound)
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind (yellow skin only)
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup cream
4 quarts water
Salt to taste if desired
3/4 pound very thin egg noodles
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


1. Cut the carrots crosswise into 1-inch lengths. Cut the pieces lengthwise into very thin slices. Stack the slices and cut them into very thin strips. There should be about 2 cups or slightly more, loosely packed.

2. Heat the butter in a saucepan and add the carrot strips and lemon rind. Cook, stirring, about 2 minutes. Add the wine and cook about 1 minute.

3. Add the lemon juice and cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the cream and bring to a boil.

4. Meanwhile, bring the water to a boil in a pot and add salt to taste. Add the noodles, and cook 3 minutes or until noodles are tender.

5. Drain the noodles and return them to the hot pot. Add the sauce and the cheese. Stir to blend and serve immediately.
