Here's a tasty take-off on German potato salad. It's flavored like the traditional side dish but uses noodles in place of potatoes. I always loved my mother's German potato salad, but once she served this noodle salad instead, I was hooked. —Gordon Kremer, Sacramento, California

Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings.
Saute onion in reserved drippings until tender. Stir in the sugar, flour, salt and mustard; add water and vinegar until blended. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.
Rinse and drain noodles; add to skillet. Stir in celery and parsley; heat through. Transfer to a serving bowl; sprinkle with reserved bacon.
