Best to use medium noodles, not too thin, not too fat. A 12
oz bag will serve 4 to 6 people.

Generally follow the directions that are on the noodle bag,
but ...

Forget recommended quantity of water, it's usually
rediculous. A typical bag of noodles can be done in a two
quart sauce pan that starts out about 3/4 full of water.

Add 1 tsp salt and a couple of tbs of liquid cooking oil
(Wesson or Crisco) to control boiling.

Bring water to rapid boil.

Add noodles and stir to submerge them. Do not cover pan.

Again bring to rapid boil, then turn the heat down to
maintain constant boiling.

Leave in boiling water until the noodles are tender to the taste. This typically takes 8 to 10 minutes, but can take as long as 25 minutes, depending on altitude, etc.

Drain the noodles in a colander then return to the saucepan.

Add a couple of big cubes of butter and stir.

Leave in pan to keep warm until ready to serve.
