Light Cream Sauce over Noodles

I love cooking shows because of the inspiration and drive to make something new and different, though they do make you very hungry.

I modified this recipe from one I saw on TV earlier today.

Ingredients:
1 bag of wide egg noodles
2 tbs of canola oil (not olive its too "flavorful")
2 cloves of garlic diced
1 large red pepper diced
5-6 cremini mushrooms or baby bella mushrooms chopped
8oz of creme fraiche (or if your grocery sucks like mine heavy cream)
1 egg yolk

Make the noodles to the bag instructions, maybe a little less so the noodles are kinda bity.  While the noodles are cooking, in a medium saucepan, saute the garlic, pepper and mushrooms until the peppers are tender (3-5 minutes).   Remove from heat briefly, add creme or cream and bring to a simmer.   Wisk in egg yolk.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Toss over the noodles and serve with some parmesan on top and chopped chive.   Simple flavor, great results.
