Corn Noodles in Tomatillo Broth

I didn't think this would work. It's a dough made not of masa harina but South American P.A.N. which is a kind of precooked corn meal. I just added water and rolled it out. It was a little tough to work with, but with patience it was cut into rather nice noodles. I thought steaming them would be gentler and I was absolutely right. It's a completely different texture than cut up tortillas; these really are noodles. Then tomatillos fried and stewed in water and salt. Nothing else. Oh, scallions. But really simple pristine flavors. I loved it, so did Darwin, the big dog.
