EGG NOODLES WITH LEMON AND POPPY SEEDS (Dutch noodles, for four)

6 ounces wide egg noodles

1-½ teaspoons poppy seeds

1-½ tablespoons unsalted butter

½ teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives


1. Cook noodles in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 8 minutes. While noodles are cooking, lightly toast poppy seeds in a dry small skillet over moderately low heat, stirring, until just fragrant, about 2 minutes.

2. Reserve ½ cup of noodle cooking water and drain noodles in a colander. Add butter and zest to warm pot and swirl until melted. Add noodles and toss, adding enough of the reserved cooking water to keep noodles moist, then stir in poppy seeds, chives and salt and pepper to taste.
