Kasha varnishkas

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Shmaltz
1 \N Onion, diced
1 cup Diced mushrooms (optional)
1 cup Medium grain kasha
1 \N Egg, beaten
2 cups Boiling water, or soup stock
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Pepper
1½ cup Bowtie noodles, cooked and drained
2 tablespoons Margarine

Heat the shmaltz in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion and mushrooms (if used) until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the kasha to the beaten egg, and mix well. Stir this mixture into the onion mixture and saute for 2 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon until the grains are separate.

At the same time, in a 1-quart saucepan, bring liquid to a boil. Pour the noiling liquid over kasha, add seasonings, and simmer covered for 10 to 15 minutes until the kasha has absorbed all the liquid and is dry and fluffy.

In a serving bowl, combine drained noodles with kasha while both are still warm. Melt in 2 tablespoons of margarine and stir until everything is well combined. Serve warm.
