I was inspired to make this Yankee Noodle dish after eating my mother-in-law Pam's family recipe. This dish is easy to make and tastes great!
Pam’s Yankee Noodle is an old family recipe from my mother-in-law Pam. Apparently, she used to make this noodle dish all the time, mainly because of the simple ingredients this recipe calls for.
This is one of those recipes that I would call comfort food. I mean how can you go wrong with pasta, cheese, and meat?
Having made this noodle recipe a handful of times over the years, I suddenly realized that I have no idea why this dish is called “Yankee” Noodles. I texted my mother-in-law to see if she knew why.
No dice. This is what she remembered about this recipe: “I got this recipe when I was in grade school. One year we all had to bring a recipe and our teacher put together a recipe book. The Yankee Noodle recipe wasn’t mine”.
So if you happen to know where the “Yankee” comes from hit me up in the comment section below.
