Hungarian Pinched Noodles (Csipetke)

Today, I decided to have a go at the Hungarian Goulash and as it reminds me very much of the Italian Minestrone and I had wanted to expand the list of soups that I’ve recently been making.  According to some websites, the traditional Goulash (guylas) did not include paprika, red peppers or potatoes.
