“Another simple but so good use for that leftover turkey - tastes fresh & delicious. Escarole is a wonderful winter green - substitute chard or kale if escarole not available or ridiculously expensive. Use broth instead of greens cooking water if substituting other greens in case they are bitter. Adapted from the Notta Pasta site. We use the medium width rice noodles from our local Saigon Market - way less expensive than the Notta Pasta at Harris Teeter (which is also a rice noodle).”
