You can also hand cut your own noodles using a knife. There are also a variety of ways to cook the noodles. The easiest method is in the microwave on a plate for 1-2 minutes. No need to add any water or anything, they steam nicely as is. You can boil noodles for 1-2 minutes in your favorite pasta sauce over the stove. Another method is to lightly saute the noodles in a frying pan with a little Olive Oil, Garlic and fresh Basil, and then adding a little salt and pepper.
