    Meat noodles!

    Primal Fuel
    Has anyone thought of using meat glue (TGase, Transglu) to make noodles?

    I was thinking about it today, would be neat (albeit a touch pricy) to make a nice paste out of some veal and pork, season it, and then use it as noodles in a flip around of a traditional bowl of pasta. Pair it with a nice marinara, and some sauteed brocoli rabe, and you have a real mind tickler of a dish.

    Anyone try any experiments like this before? Has anyone tried doing it with something other than transglutaminase?

    How about eggs? The old version of Atkins just beat eggs, baked them on a cookie sheet and cut into strips to use as noodles.

    Would be interesting, but basically just an omelet?

    I'm thinking using some molecular gastronomy approaches and make a nice pappardelle, or maybe some scallop gnocchi?

    The konjac root cake that they use to make "miracle noodles" is sold in asian markets in a block like tofu. You could use that to sculpt all kinds of interesting things

    There's a recipe for spaghetti alle vongole in Modernist Cuisine.


    We served one of my favorite dishes, which is a riff on the classic Italian dish, spaghetti alle vongole – spaghetti with clam sauce. Instead of using spaghetti pasta, however, we cut thin strips of geoduck clam for our “pasta.” When properly cut and then gently heated, it has an amazing sweet clam taste and looks and feels enough like a noodle that the dish comes off.

    I use shiritake noodles (konjak root ones) for my asian foods, and when I want more of Europenian cuisine with noodles, I go for zuccini "linguini" with browned butter and nuts.

    If I get a banana squash, I simply cut it in half, cover up with Cerano and microwave till the 'noodles' inside separate out (a few minutes).
