Homemade Noodles for a Crowd

 Homemade Noodles for a Crowd
When our son Conrad married Erin on our dairy farm, family and friends helped me prepare food for 400. To go with grilled pork and chicken, we fixed an array of side dishes, including these wonderful noodles. At this Polish wedding, we wanted to be sure no one went home hungry.
