Hola! The #DeLaLuz team has the perfect side dish for you to pair with that beef milanese posted earlier today. This fideo seco is a Mexican pasta dish that is a staple in most Mexican households. It's the pasta version of a noodle soup or as we call it in Mexico, sopa de fideo. If you were struggling with holiday blues this right here my friends, paired with that scrumptious beef milanese is going to hit the spot.

Till next time.

Love, Marla
