Is there a use for left over egg noodles?

Often, I cook more egg noodles than I need for a meal. They are cheap and the leftovers usually go down the disposal.

Do yu folks have any ideas on uses for leftover egg noodles?

  1. Probably not enough left over, but "noodle kugel".

    1. Ersatz chow fun - fry them with beef, pork, or chicken and some soy sauce. Noodles are great when they get golden, crisp edges. Also, they can be frozen for future use, like adding to soup.
      I was raised to be frugal and wouldn't think of throwing out food just because it was left over.

            Yeah. Right up there with rice, mashed potatoes, pastas in general. I mean really, is there a startch that isn't used over and over. Not in my house. Had leftover mac n cheese just last night.

      2. toss in some canned tuna and a little cheese. Bake. Tuna caserole.

        1. saute mushrooms, sliced onions, and minced garlic in olive oil and butter then add sour cream, season with S&P add egg noodles. Mushroom Stroganoff

          1. A childhood favorite, put them in Campbells tomato soup, made with half water and half milk.
