Dec11 Fun Holiday – Noodle Ring Day

December 11 is Noodle Ring Day, a day for comforting baked pasta.

Baked nest of noodles, noodle casserole.

Noodle ring is a version of a pasta bake.


Popular during the mid-1900s, Noodle Ring Day is a dish made of flat noodles or any other type of flat pasta baked in a ring mold or a bundt pan.

Fill the Ring

Making noodle ring from scratch is easy, all you need is some cooked pasta, eggs, bread crumbs and a cheese that melts easily. Mix all the ingredients and put it in a mold and bake until all the eggs cook and the cheese melts. Unmold and fill the center with a filling of your choice. Many recipes recommend chicken salad, sautéed vegetables or canned tuna as a filling.

How to Celebrate?

  • Dig out your grandma’s cookbooks and make a noodle ring for dinner.
  • Don't like the pasta that is available in the stores? Make your own from scratch and then use to make a noodle ring.
  • Make a dessert version of the dish - use sugar while baking the noodles and instead of a savory filling use fresh cut fruit or a custard or pudding.
  • Host a vintage dinner party and have friends bring their favorite vintage dishes to share. Make a noodle ring as your contribution to the dinner table.
