Noodles are made by some type of unleavened dough being rolled out and cut into a variety of shapes.
Long thin strips are likely the most popular, however some of the other shapes such as; tubes, strings, shells, flat, wide and etc., have their fans also. Boiling, pan-frying or deep-frying them are the common ways of preparing the noodles.
They then can be eaten alone, with butter or with a sauce or used in soups, casseroles, salads, lasagna, and etc.
It is a question as to where the noodle was first invented but it is known that it has been a staple in many parts of the world for over 1800 years.
There is a report that, in 2002, archaeologists along the Yellow River in China found an earthenware bowl containing some 4000-year-old noodles which had been well preserved.
