Egg Noodles with Three Onion Cream Sauce

Three members of the onion family ~ sweet onions, shallots and leeks combine with butter and cream for a rich, but mildly flavored sauce for egg noodles. These noodles make a nice side for pungently flavored meats and poultry. We served them with Orange And Rosemary Sauced Pork Cutlets.
