2 eggs
2 cups seasoned bread crumbs

Starting from the end with the sauce on it, roll up the noodle like a sleeping bag towards the un-sauced side.

How to Make Easy Veggie Stock With Kitchen Scraps #TastyFreshFriday
Makes roughly 3 quarts

INGREDIENTS
Onions (tops, bottoms, and skins)
Celery (tops and bottoms)
Carrots (tops, bottoms, and skins)
Mushrooms (stems)
Garlic (tops, bottoms, and skins)
Potatoes (tops, bottoms, and skins)
Parsley (stems)

You can add many other vegetable scraps (think sweet!) - i.e. corn cobs, winter squash, zucchini, and other squash, beet greens, fennel, chard, lettuce, parsnips, green beans, pea pods, bell peppers, eggplant, mushrooms, asparagus, and herbs like dill, thyme, parsley, cilantro, and basil.

PREPARATION
Remove the tops/bottoms/skins/stems from any vegetables you are preparing (avoid vegetables like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, or cauliflower as they will add a bitter taste to your stock) and place them in a ziplock bag - they can stay frozen up to 6 months.
Continue like this until bag is full.
Dump bag into pot and fill ¾ of the pot (or until scraps just start to float) with water.
Bring water to a boil and then let it simmer for at least 30 minutes.
Strain water out of stock.
Refrigerate stock up to 4 days, or freeze up to 3 months.

PRIME RIB WITH GARLIC HERB BUTTER
Servings: 7-9

INGREDIENTS
1 cup butter, softened
7 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon pepper
5-7 pound boneless ribeye roast, trimmed
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups beef stock
Mashed potatoes, to serve
Green beans, to serve

PREPARATION
Preheat oven to 500°F/260°C.
Mix together the butter, garlic, herbs, salt, and pepper in a bowl until evenly combined.
Rub the herb butter all over the rib roast, then place on a roasting tray with a rack.
Bake for 5 minutes per pound of meat, so a 5-pound roast would bake for 25 minutes, and a 7-pound roast would bake for 35 minutes.
Turn off the heat and let the rib roast sit in the oven for 2 hours, making sure you do not open the oven door or else the residual heat will escape.
Once the 2 hours are up, remove the roast from the pan and pour the pan drippings into a saucepan over medium heat.
Add the flour, whisking until there are no lumps, then add the beef stock, stirring and bringing the sauce to a boil.
Remove from heat and strain the sauce into a gravy dish.
Carve the prime rib into ¾-inch slices, then serve with the mashed potatoes, green beans, and sauce!
