Tips

This is very good with or without parsley.
The original recipe said it served 6 and i have found it is closer to 10 one cup servings.
Capellini noodles or orzo can be substituted for the egg noodles.

NOTE: The recipe calls for two chopped onions.
The extra onions are a mistake and i could not get thre remove button to work.
