December 11th is National Noodle Ring day. Ok you may be thinking exactly what I was what exactly is a noodle ring? A noodle ring is made by mixing eggs and noodles together with ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, cheese and then molding the ingredients into a ring mold to bake. The center of the ring can be easily filled with creamed chicken, peas, or other ingredient of your choice.
While noodlering recipes were common to be found in mid century cookbook it has lost its popularity since then. Now the common cook does not make a noodle ring. Most cooks of today simply cook noodles and serve them separately or with a sauce.
This recipe was clipped from a magazine and found in a large collection, date unknown. I’ve typed it below along with a scanned copy.

3/4 tsp. salt
