Here is a very easy “luchshen” (“noodle” in Yiddish) dish that you can put together very quickly. You can make this ahead and serve it a few days later, just lightly heat in the oven or microwave. Everyone will love this, especially kids who enjoy the different colored noodles. This is a great dish to serve on a buffet table or for a brunch gathering.
