How to Turn Regular Pasta to Chinese (Oriental) Noodles

Here you can use either thin spaghetti or Angel hair pasta into Chinese noodles. Great for Lo Mein or noodle soup. My Japanese friend who lives in Germany taught me this technique.

directions

  • Bring lots of water to boil as you would usually cook pasta.
  • Add salt (I use about 1TBSP) and baking soda.
  • Add pasta and cook about 2 minutes longer than what the package says. Drain and use in any recipes in place of Chinese noodles.
