Long-life Noodles

February 05

This noodle recipe is absolutely delicious and very easy to make. In fact they are so tasty they are a regular quick meal for me! There are many varieties of noodles to choose from, and really you can you use any you like here, but I prefer the thinner ones, which cook very quickly.
