This is another of those recipes my mom got from the 1980's microwave cooking class. You don't pre-cook the noodles for this. This recipe pre-dates turntables. To save wear and tear on your microwave's turn table take the glass turn table plate out, remove the roller ring and then put the plate back in upside down. This recipe requires a microwave safe 9x13 baking dish. I use a Pyrex one.
