I have fretted for a long while over how to have leftover soup with noodles and not have the noodles just soak up all the liquid, becoming all fat and mushy. How does Campbells do it? Special noodles? So I started adding cooked noodles to each individual bowl and pouring soup on top, and keeping them separate in the leftovers too. Then....I figured it out, people. I can go. on. with. my. LIFE!! And the kids can have proper noodle soup in their lunch tomorrow.
Here's what you do:
1. Cook and cool noodles.
2. Cook and cool soup completely.
3. Mix together.
So simple. I can't believe it took me so long to figure that out. Let me know if it doesn't work for you and we'll go back to the science lab.
