Leeanne asks for noodles for lunch and it's not always sauteed. She'll ask for cold noodles or hot soup noodles depending on the weather. I always separate the soup from the noodles as they would absorb too much liquid and turn mushy. Noodles tend to stick together and so don't forget to add a bit of oil to the noodles. Then they won't all stick together in a clump when they open their lunch box!
